I just installed Firefox. I looked at a few articles here that seem to be relevant to my issue, but they didn't get me anywhere. I just want to export bookmarks from Chrome to Firefox.

TIA SweetTasha

Note that you can export the GC bookmarks in Google Chrome to an HTML file and import this File in Firefox.

You can open the Bookmarks Manager in Google Chrome (icon with the three bars -> Bookmarks -> Bookmarks Manager) and select "Organize -> Export Bookmarks to HTML File" (not sure if this hasn't changed). This will export the Chrome bookmarks to a bookmarks.html file.

Firefox lets you easily import bookmarks and other data from Google Chrome. This article gives you step-by-step instructions for getting it done.

Click the menu button Fx89menuButton to open the menu panel. Click Bookmarks and then click the Manage Bookmarks bar at the bottom. From the toolbar in the Library window, click Import and Backup and choose Import Data from Another Browser...

Tip: Another way to import from another browser is to enable the Menu bar (press Alt on the keyboard to enable it temporarily), then click File in Menu bar at the top of the Firefox window and select Import from Another Browser…. In the Import Wizard window that appears, select Chrome, then click Next

Firefox will list the types of settings and information it can import. Select the items you want to import. Chrome Items to import 57 Cookies: Small bits of information stored on your computer by some websites that are used to keep you logged in, store your options, or do other things. Browsing History: Information on the sites you have visited. Saved Passwords: Your usernames and passwords that Chrome remembered. Bookmarks: Web pages you have saved in your Chrome bookmarks. Click Next

to import the selected items. The wizard shows what was imported.

Click Finish

to close the window. The items you selected should now be available.

Because Chrome defaults to saving bookmarks in its bookmarks toolbar, you should be able to find your imported bookmarks in a folder named From Google Chrome in the Firefox Bookmarks Toolbar.

The Bookmarks Toolbar may be hidden. To show the Bookmarks Toolbar:

Click the menu buttonFx89menuButton, click More Tools… and choose Customize Toolbar…. Click the Toolbars dropdown menu at the bottom of the screen and choose the Bookmarks Toolbar. Fx89CustomizeToolbars-win The Bookmarks Toolbar can be set to Always Show, Never Show, or Only Show on New Tab. Click the Done button.
