Migrate from Chrome to Firefox and transfer data, favorites and passwords

Chrome is Google's most popular web browser, the most used in the world, full of features, fast enough and always updated with the latest security options.
Firefox is the second choice, lagging far behind in terms of improvements, at least until the release of Firefox Quantum, which has relaunched the Mozilla browser decisively, becoming very fast .
Firefox therefore returns to be an optimal choice for surfing the web and visiting websites both on the computer and on smartphones and tablets, especially because it is perhaps even faster than Chrome and because it is much more customizable in its interface.
In case you want to switch from Chrome to Firefox, however, it becomes necessary to migrate all the data from one browser to another in order to keep the same favorites, the same data as the websites, the saved passwords and possibly also the chronologists at.
First of all you can use Firefox's internal function to import data from other browsers the first time it is started on a computer.
The tool to transfer data from Chrome to Firefox can also be used without reinstalling Firefox, although it remains a bit hidden under the Bookmarks Manager window.
To open the Bookmarks Manager, click on the Library icon on the top toolbar and then go to Bookmarks -> View all bookmarks or press the Ctrl + Shift + B keys together.
From the bookmarks management window in Firefox, click on the " Import and save " button and then click on " Import data from another browser " (If you want to import only your favorites from Chrome or other browsers, then you can use the " Import bookmarks from HTML ").
Choose Chrome (or another browser if used), make sure Chrome is closed and then go on to continue the process.
You will then be asked to choose which data you want to import and if you have multiple profiles, which profile to migrate the data from.
By default, Firefox imports cookies, browsing history, saved passwords and favorites from Chrome .
You can deselect one of these options to import only certain types of data.
Chrome's favorites will be placed in the " From Chrome " folder in the bookmarks menu and in the toolbar, but you can then rearrange them as you wish.
Firefox cannot import other data that could be considered important such as, for example, the extensions that will be searched on the Mozilla site.
Once you have imported all the data, if necessary, you must set Firefox as the default Windows browser by going to the Firefox options, in the General section.
In Windows 10 you will also need to go to the Settings, in the Apps> Default apps section, in order to change the default browser of the PC.
