No there isn't. You'll need an HTML file, or figure out how to convert your CSV.

I think you might be thinking of bookmarks. OP is asking about passwords.

Ahh right. There's been a few queries for bookmarks so got carried away.

Theoretically, you can add passwords to the database via a scratchpad. But you will have to make a text file with a set of instructions from your csv.

When I first switched to Pale Moon, I used this Add-on to import all my passwords.

It's been about a year, and at the time I didn't make a note of the steps, so I can't describe what I did, but I was able to produce a CSV file with the passwords from my previous browser that was compatible with and could be imported by the Add-on. I wish I could be more specific, but I do know that my 400+ passwords were imported into Pale Moon without having to re-enter them one by one?
