Plenty of Internet browsers like to hold the title of the best available. The truth of the matter is that many of them have their own set of pros and cons.

This means that it all boils down to personal preferences since you can always migrate from another easily anyway. For example, some of you might be interested in migrating from using Google Chrome to Mozilla Firefox.

The only problem when changing browsers is that all of your personal preferences and bookmarks are left behind.

Fortunately enough, there are several methods for you to try and transfer your bookmarks from Google Chrome to Mozilla Firefox.

How can I import bookmarks from Chrome to Firefox?

1. Import them directly from Mozilla Firefox

1. Launch Mozilla Firefox.

2. Click the Library button. It looks like a stack of books.

3. Click on Bookmarks.

4. Scroll down until you see Manage Bookmarks, and then open it.

5. Click on Import and Backup.

7. Select Google Chrome from the list.

8. Click Next.

9. Firefox will now show you a list of all settings that you can choose to import. There are the following:

  • Cookies
  • Browsing History
  • Saved Passwords
  • Bookmarks

10. Select Bookmarks and click Next.

11. Press on Finish.

12. In Mozilla Firefox, any imported bookmarks will be stored and displayed on the toolbar. In this case, you should now see a new folder on your toolbar labeled From Google Chrome.

If you are looking to import Chrome bookmarks to Firefox, you can do this from within the Firefox browser. It has a dedicated library section containing all the bookmarks, which allows you to import bookmarks from another browser into it.

One thing you should remember is that this setup will trigger automatically when you first install Mozilla Firefox. Thus, if you already have Google Chrome installed and are just installing Mozilla Firefox, you will be able to import the bookmarks much more quickly.
