How to import Chrome bookmarks to Firefox Quantum

If you’ve decided to switch from Chrome to Firefox Quantum, you only have to take the following steps to import all your bookmarks from Google’s web browser:

  1. Step 1: open Firefox Quantum and go to the right hand-side of the toolbar at the top of the screen. There you’ll see an icon with the shape of books on a shelf. If you move your mouse over it, you’ll see that it’s the option to manage your bookmarks and history, amongst many other options. Click on it to access the Catalog window.
  2. Step 2: go to Show all Bookmarks, where you’ll find the option Import and Backup. Click on this button and then on Import data from.
  3. Step 3: the import wizard will open from where you can choose browsers of the likes of Internet Explorer or Google Chrome. Obviously, click on Chrome.
  4. Step 4: you can now select which elements to import. Specifically, you can choose to import cookies, browsing history, and bookmarks. You might be interested in selecting them all.
  5. Step 5: now click on Finish to run the import process.

Your Chrome bookmarks can be found in a folder called From Google Chrome as this browser saves these bookmarks by default on the toolbar. Now you can leave them in this folder or even include them as a shortcut.

After a certain period of time, the usual thing would be to adapt the browser to our own way of browsing the Internet. From our bookmarks to other aspects such as our passwords, all the latter, to make our user experience much more simple and comfortable without having to remember our passwords each time we access our email or social networks, and without having to type in URLs if we want to visit the webs we access on a regular basis.
