Why does Firefox crash when I try to import bookmarks from Chrome?

Tried 3 times to import bookmarks but Firefox crashes when it gets to 'bookmarks' after copying cookies and browsing history from the 'items to import' window. Checked all the Chrome bookmarks for errors etc, cleaned them and then tried again but still crashing. It is only Firefox that crashes everything else works OK.

Thanks, but it says no crash reports have been submitted. The history and cookies 'grayed out' as if completed but when it got to bookmarks the whole browser was just hung

Did you try to export the bookmarks in Google Chrome to an HTML file and import this file in the Firefox Bookmarks Manager (Library)?
