Hello, I would like to propose that firefox add the ability to cipher passwords that are inported to a csv file
Sorry i use an automatic translation service, sorry for grammatical errors.
Thanks for submitting an idea to the Mozilla Connect community! Your idea is now open to votes (aka kudos) and comments.
@Arkadiuszthank you for sharing this idea with us!
If we encrypt the CSV file, then other app (where user will be importing it) must be able to decrypt it. It will not be a CSV file anymore, it would be some other encrypted format. Do you have any specific format in mind?
@Serg@Jon @Arkadiusz Hi all! How are you guys? So, I Believe a good format would be the keepass file: https://keepass.info/help/base/importexport.html - What do you guys think of the idea?
@Serg, I meant to give the user the possibility to choose if he wants to have the file encoded . But it would also be a good idea to add a file in keepass format as @Anonymous wrote
@Anonymous yes, this is one of the good options. Although I couldn't find any mention of encryption on the provided link.
@Arkadiusz there may be a confusion between "encoding" and "encryption". Encoding means that data can be read, just use different "language" (UTF8 or Windows1252). Encryption means user need a password (or decryption key) to read data.
Typical use case for CSV export is to transfer passwords to another app. It should not be used as a backup or storage technology, because it's not encrypted. Every app uses own version of encryption, that's why it's next to impossible to cover all cases.
@SergHi! How are you?
@Serg I meant encrypting the CSV file, I use CSV files like an extra security copy for passwords. If there is any better way of backing up passwords in FF please give me a hint.
Best regards Arkadiusz
@Serg@ArkadiuszHi all! Hope to help everyone!
Here is a list of reasons why this should be done:

Other important considerations
Thank you for links and details. While we do not have any plans for Keepass integration any time soon, this gives me ideas. I'll keep you updated here.
