When I first downloaded Firefox, I instantly went to transfer data from browser to browser. It did import the data, just not the right data. When I transferred it, I noticed it was actually the data from two years ago instead of what I currently have.

Hi CF_CleverFox, your experience raises an interesting question. As you know, Google lets you create more than one "person" using a button on the main toolbar. How does Firefox know which person's stuff to import? Seemingly, it used the oldest/original one. If you look at your person list, does that check out?

Perhaps someone who knows more about how Chrome data is stored can figure out a way to point Firefox to the correct folder or mention which files/folders might be renamed/copied so that the oldest "person" has the stuff you want to import.
