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:


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.

This is still a work in progress:

  • bug 589589 - Chrome profile migration for Import Wizard and Migration Assistant - passwords, form data, and settings
