Firefox - Switching from Chrome

Switching from Google Chrome to Firefox is easy and risk-free! Firefox can automatically move bookmarks, passwords, history and other preferences from Chrome without deleting it or interfering with any of its settings. Give it a try.


  1. Don't remove Chrome [yet]... We'll need it to import your Bookmarks, Passwords, and History soon.
  2. Download and install Firefox from https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/new/.
  3. Quit Chrome if you have it running.
    quit chrome mac
  4. Open your newly-installed Firefox. The import tool will pop up.
    • If it doesn't, click the library icon , click Bookmarks, go down to the bottom and click Show all Bookmarks, and lastly, click Import import button icon and select Import Data from another Browser from the menu.
  5. The import tool will look like this:

  6. Choose Chrome in the Import Settings and Data window. In the next screen, choose the things you want to import. Follow the prompts and Firefox will take care of the rest.
