How to Import Bookmarks from Chrome to Firefox

Mozilla has made a huge move by releasing Firefox Quantum in the late of 2017. Firefox Quantum brought the most changes in the Firefox releases history. Many parties praised Firefox Quantum, arguing it would be the Google Chrome killer. Based on the same reason, you probably want to make a switch from Chrome to Firefox. If so, one of the things you need to bring with you is the bookmarks you have on Chrome.

Both Chrome and Firefox have a bookmark manager. Not only you can use the bookmark manager on each browser to save and manage bookmarks, it also useful when you want to make a switch from one browser to each one.

If you want to make a switch from Chrome to Firefox, you can firstly export the bookmarks you have on Chrome to be imported to Firefox. Here are the steps to do so.

Then, click the three-dot icon at the top-right corner of the bookmark page and select Export Bookmarks. Don’t forget to save the bookmarks file. It will be saved in a HTML file.

On the bookmarks manager window, click the Import and Backup menu and select Import Bookmarks from HTML.
