How do I resync my bookmarks from a different browser after I've set up Firefox?

I set up Firefox and had Chrome open at the same time. I also have Internet Explorer. When the install menu asked me to choose where I would like to import my bookmarks from, I chose Chrome. It told me I needed to make sure the browser was closed before I tried to import from it. I then closed my Chrome and finished setting up Firefox. However I have my bookmarks from Internet Explorer and not my Chrome. I want to know if there is any way to fix this because changing all my bookmarks by hand would be a very tiresome process. I have very different bookmarks on both Chrome and Internet Explorer.

You can follow the steps below: -> Press Shift+Control+B -> Click Show All Bookmarks (window opens) -> Click Import and Backup -> Select Import Data from Another Browser... (window opens) -> Follow on screen selection from there on Hope this helps!

Thank you for the response. Right before I saw this I actually fixed my problem. I had to export my Chrome bookmarks to an HTML and then loaded that file into Firefox and did some rearranging in order to get it the way it was in Chrome.

That fixed it - Thank you very much - would it be possible for it to be shown as an option when Mozilla Firefox is first Downloaded, as having selected One Browser from which to Import - I did not know where to look next?
