I've been very unhappy with Chrome off late, and I want to move back to firefox. The only problem is I have a load of bookmarks and saved passwords in Chrome.
I remember firefox showing me a dialog to import bookmarks and passwords from chrome the first time I started it, but I just can't seem to find it anywhere now. I even tried googling for it, but no one seems to address the issue.
I am sure there is something very simple I am missing here.

Alt+B, show all bookmarks, import and backup, import data from another browser. –  user25656 Jun 17 '13 at 17:29
    
@vasa1 there it is! However, it said "No browser found".. It doesn't work with Chromium? Anyway, I use google chrome in my office desktop, and I will try importing the data from there. –  Munim Jun 17 '13 at 17:46

@vasa1 i just tried it.. it worked, but a little disappointed that it didn't import my passwords. Oh well. Anyway, you answered my question, so you can put it down as an answer and I can accept it, and close this question. –  Munim Jun 18 '13 at 6:43

BTW, bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=589589 indicates that importing passwords is a work in progress :( –  user25656 Jun 18 '13 at 7:05

@vasa1 ah.. I think I am just going to use an external password manager to export and import passwords for now. I hear lastpass extension/plugin for chrome and firefox can do this. –  Munim Jun 18 '13 at 12:59

Firefox can import bookmarks from Chrome (but apparently not from Chromium!). To do so, press Alt+B to open the bookmarks window, click on Import and backup, and then on import data from another browser. You should see Chrome listed.
