Import bookmarks from Chrome to Firefox

After reading this post, you will know how to import bookmarks from Chrome to Firefox.

In case you want to switch your choice of browser, you don’t need to go over the whole bookmarking process again.

Imagine how frustrating that could be if you have huge bookmarks from your Chrome browser.

I don’t want to go into details about why you want to switch from Chrome to Firefox.

For whatever reason, my duty is just to share with you some useful tips that will help you import your bookmarks.

If you are a blogger or a researcher, you must have had so many bookmarks you’ve been making reference to in the course of your research.

You will need no third-party extension or add-on to execute this task.

Without any third-party plugin, you can still import your Chrome bookmarks to Firefox efficiently.

So let’s get straight into it.

How to import bookmarks from Chrome to Firefox

You can simply get your bookmarks from Chrome to Firefox by simply synchronizing your bookmarks for both browsers.

But if you don’t want to do it that way, it is still possible to import bookmarks from Chrome to Firefox without synchronizing them.

Automatic synchronization between these two browsers will not be selective but will sync everything.

So if there are some bookmarks that you don’t want to take with you as you are heading over to Firefox, then you might want to do away with the sync option to import bookmarks from Chrome to Firefox.

Here are the steps…

Export your bookmarks from Chrome by visiting the Chrome bookmark manager section.

Organize the bookmark the way you want them.

Then export the bookmarks to the HTML file from the drop-down menu.

If you don’t know how to navigate to this section on your Chrome browser, follow the steps below;

  • Tap the vertical 3 dots at the top right of your Chrome browser
  • Go to settings
  • On the first “you and Google” section, tap on import bookmarks and settings
  • Configure the checkboxes the way you want then download/export the HTML file

Now head over to Mozilla Firefox to import your bookmarks.

  • Tap on the hamburger icon at the top right corner of your Firefox browser
  • Then select the library to get to the bookmarks section
  • Tap on show all bookmarks at the bottom of the page to open the library window
  • Now choose the import and backup option in the library to select the file and import the bookmarks from the HTML file you exported from Chrome earlier or you import directly from Chrome.

That’s it!

By now, all the bookmarks you saved while you were using Chrome must have migrated to Firefox.
