I can't import my 'everything' from Chrome, because it's not on the list of browsers; there are only Edge & IE, so, what can I do to fix this problem

... and on the top of it, chrome is not on the Edge's list to import my bookmarks, what is very strange. I've decided to use MFF for privacy reasons, but if I'll not be able to import 'my stuff', I'll have to go back to chrome

Chosen solution

By the way, if you only wanted to import bookmarks, that's fairly easy because you can Export from Chrome in HTML format and then import that file into Firefox. But that doesn't work for the other kinds of data.

Hmm, that's strange. You're using this method: Import data from another browser?

I wonder whether Firefox doesn't see it because its data folders are in an unexpected location. Can you find them here:

%LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data

The folders have names like Default, Profile 1, Profile 2, etc.

I don't know how Firefox determines the person names for each profile; those are displayed in the dialog for me. Maybe Firefox can't track that down?

Hi,

Thanks for your quick response, provided info & especially for your willingness to help me with my dilemma, but for some reason/s it didn't fix the problem, so, as I've stated before, feeling very disappointed, I'm going back to chrome.

Thank you again & all of the best,
