How do I import all of my Google Chrome data into Firefox. Data like bookmarks, cookies, history or settings.
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:
- I opened Chrome and used the Ctrl-H keyboard short cut to open the Chrome history pages.
- Right click in a blank space on the history page
- Select the save page as option
- Choose a convenient folder for saving the file
- If necessary type an appropriate file name
- 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)
- After completing these steps I closed Chrome then opened Firefox.
- Once Firefox was active I clicked on the File menu and selected the Open File option.
- Next search for the file saved in steps 4, 5, and 6 above.
- Then double click on the file to open it.
- Firefox will now display one or more pages of the link you save from Chrome.
- Select the link you want and double click.
- 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 .
