Description of the issue: I’m currently in the process of saving all the valuable information on my PC before I completely reset it. When trying to export my stuff all I found was to import not export. Terribly sorry if this is the wrong area for this but I’m not sure where else to put this. If this is the wrong area please move this into the right area. Thank you!

Reproducible on current live release (yes/no): Not sure
As it happens I’d already read that and attempted it without success. I found another posting somewhere here concerning others having difficulty importing bookmarks and followed the instructions there (export from safari, then import the file). That worked.
But the issue of passwords is rather different it seems. That is, when I look at the page you sent I notice a few things.
The word ‘password’ does not appear in the text, rather ‘browsing data.’
The ‘work-around’ above brought over bookmarks, but no ‘settings’ of any kind.
When I follow the instruction listed on the page you sent, I note that item 4 is “Check the desired settings to import and click Import” but there ARE NO options given except “Favorites/Bookmarks.”
So I seem to be stuck at re-entering them all one by one. Of course there may be some super obvious thing staring me in the face without my noticing, but I tried those instructions 4-5 times before looking for the work-around, and I’ve tried them again since hoping to see any other options than ‘Favorites/Bookmarks’, but to no avail.
Closed in favor of “master” issue below.
Even if you’ve already reported this issue before – reply here with some details about what did (or did not) get imported when they tried using the importer if you’d like to help us get this issue resolved:
