Hi!

As far as I know, there's no possibility of doing this automatically, yet. There's a group working on it.

You can migrate them manually...but I guess that's quite a lot of work.

Sorry for not being more helpful. Ibai

There's some info here:

http://techlogon.com/2011/12/02/how-to-import-google-chrome-data-into-firefox/

That article indicates that Firefox has an automatic importer since version 11, but I think that only runs the very first time you launch Firefox. Those steps should work - I just tried with the newest versions of Firefox and Chrome installed, and it let me import Chrome data.
