Importing Bookmarks through an HTML
The first method can only import Bookmarks on the same computer. When you both have Chrome and Firefox on the same computer, then the first method is easy.
However, what if you want to import Bookmarks from computer 1 to computer 2. Basically, computer 2 can’t import the Chrome Bookmarks from computer 1 unless we use the HTML import method.

What you need to do now is to upload your HTML file with the Bookmarks to a site that allows file sharing. You could save it on a USB drive and carry the file around.
Step 4: Download HTML file
Use computer 2 now and download the HTML file with the Bookmarks into the unit, or just copy it from the USB drive.
Step 5: Open FireFox
Now open your Firefox, click on the same icon on the image above, and Show all Bookmarks.
Step 6: Import Bookmarks from HTML
Click on Import and Backup then, followed by clicking on Import Bookmarks from HTML. Earlier, we saved the Chrome Bookmarks as ChromeBookmarks.
Click on the file or whatever name you saved it. Just wait for the process to end, and you’ll be done.
Step 7: Check Bookmarks on Firefox
Simply check on the Bookmarks on Firefox and see if they have been successfully imported via HTML.
You can always import bookmarks from Chrome to Firefox in more ways than one. It makes things easier for you when you really love your Bookmarks.
That concludes the discussion. With just a few simple steps, you can import your Chrome Bookmarks into Firefox.
