I have just switched from Google Chrome to Firefox. No I want to export all the history, cookies, bookmarks and that kind of stuff from Chrome, into Firefox.

I have allready done this with the bookmarks but that aint sufficient for me. I want it all so I do not have to re-enter all my passwords and more like that.

You can export your Chrome bookmarks and import them into Firefox -> see https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Importing%20bookmarks%20from%20Google%20Chrome

Not sure about cookies, history and passwords (but I am sure Google has a better answer)

My only need here was to export Google's Chrome History so I could work with it in FireFox. I found this solution here:

  1. I opened Chrome and used the Ctrl-H keyboard short cut to open the Chrome history pages.
  2. Right click in a blank space on the history page
  3. Select the save page as option
  4. Choose a convenient folder for saving the file
  5. If necessary type an appropriate file name
  6. Save the display history page in an html format. (In Windows 7, the option that worked for me was to save it as a "Web page, complete" rather than just the HTML option)
  1. After completing these steps I closed Chrome then opened Firefox.
  2. Once Firefox was active I clicked on the File menu and selected the Open File option.
  3. Next search for the file saved in steps 4, 5, and 6 above.
  4. Then double click on the file to open it.
  5. Firefox will now display one or more pages of the link you save from Chrome.
  6. Select the link you want and double click.
  7. Firefox should now display the selected web page(s).

This may not technically be an export but it is a functional equivalent.

This worked for me but only when opening the saved file with Chrome closed .
