How to transfer browsing data from MS Edge Dev to Firefox

Posted

Hello. I'd just like to ask how I can transfer my browsing data from MS Edge Dev (which is chromium based, aka like chrome) to Firefox. When I go through the usual means, it's not there except the shit that is the original Edge and the joke which is Internet Explorer. I don't get chrome as an option as I don't use it, since Google is crap. Is there any way that I can do it, by importing files myself (and if so, which ones) or something? If there's no way to do it, at least I hope the Mozilla team see this to implement it, I doubt it's hard but I don't know.

What does the content of the profile folder used by this Edge Dev version look like? Google Chrome use a Bookmarks file that stores data in JSON format. Some other data might be stored in SQLite databases.

Maybe install Google Chrome temporarily to see if that version can import the Edge profile and then check if Firefox can import the data from Google Chrome.

So I had a look and the JSON files I could find by search is some manifest JSON files in a few random folders but nothing seemed to be linked to the profile. There doesn't even seem to be a clearly labelled profile or account folder or anything like that as seen in the image. The only thing resembling it is identity_proxy but it just has files to do with the various beta versions of ms edge on chromium like canary and dev. There is another folder outside of this main one but it has nothing of substance, just has the executable files and another folder with setup files. I also couldn't get chrome to import from ms edge dev, even with basic edge all it does is import favourites/bookmarks so I couldn't get that to work either.
