[openFATE 311145] import firefox passwords into chromium kde wallet
Feature changed by: Martin Seidler (pistazienfresser)
Feature #311145, revision 2
Title: import firefox passwords into chromium kde wallet

Hackweek VI: Unconfirmed
Priority
Requester: Desirable

Requested by: Susanne Oberhauser (froh)
Partner organization: openSUSE.org

Description:
somehow import firefox passwords into chromium.
They can be exported using the Password Exporter
(https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/password-exporter/) plugin.
They in theory can be imported into KDEWallet using the KDE Wallet password
integration
(https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/kde-wallet-password-integratio/)
plugin
In practice, the imported firefox passwords are in another wallet
folder than the chromium passwords.

Use Case:
When a heavy firefox user gives chromium a try, she'll find all her
passwords lost.

+ A tool to synchronize passwords (and bookmarks) securely in the
+ cloud/on a server/web space may be a more universally approach
+ especially if you use more than one device or other browsers like
+ opera, too: Something like Xmarks (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xmarks)
+ but more secure and on an free chosen or/and openSUSE related space.
+ Why not build on/use an already existing open browser synchronizer
+ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_browser_synchronizers) or a
+ password manager
+ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Password_managers) like KeePassX
+ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KeePassX) ?
