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.
    • (Optional) If you have Google Chrome open tabs you want to save, bookmark them all in an easy to find location, such as in a new “Open Tabs” folder in the Bookmarks bar.

  2. Download and install Firefox from Mozilla’s download page.
  3. Quit ChromeExit Chrome if you have it running.

    quit chrome mac

    quit chrome win

  4. Open your newly-installed Firefox. The import tool will pop up.
  5. The import tool will look similar tolike 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.
    • (Optional) If you saved your open tabs in Google Chrome, find the “From Google Chrome” folder (normally at the end of the Firefox Bookmarks Toolbar), select the “Open Tabs” folder you created and click to open the tabs in Firefox.
