Hi,
Is there an easy way of exporting both bookmarks and passwords from Firefox to Safari or Chrome?
Exporting just the bookmarks looks straightforward enough but I would also like to transfer the passwords too.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

@ ibrahim52,

It does, if you have tried it. I have just installed the Chrome to test this and it works for me. It did as me to fill the Username field but all my passwords from Chrome were imported.

Canu, for the passwords,  I would suggest using Lastpass.  It will find and import all saved passwords in any of your browsers and encrypt them and keep them safe. You can then use it to populate those same user names and passwords in any browser and you can access them from any machine.

Thanks for your input everybody.

I forgot to mention that I would be interested in importing bookmarks & passwords to Chrome 32 or Safari 5 or 6.

The idea is that I would like the same information available on different devices and these two browsers seem to fit the bill.

I'll take a closer look and will get back to you ASAP.

Hi again and Happy New Year.

I looked at LastPass and that certainly seems to be a good idea.

I also was able to import both my bookmarks and passwords in Chrome on this occasion so this is the route I decided to take on this occasion.

Thanks for your help!
