    Hey tech guys,

    usually I can fetch bookmark folder to chrome from Mozilla FireFox,
    recently, re-installed windows, and all other apps, but when I logged to FireFox mozilla,, I can't find my bookmarks synced (as usual) inthe past years, so the only option to keep my bookmarks was to import it from chrome, and when tried to fetch back to chrome,, can't,
    I tried several times, removed and re-installed firefox,, but the issu still there,,
    is there anything wrong with this option?
    thanks,

    Try exporting as a HTML from Chrome and import it in Firefox.

    Side Note, if you create a FireFox account, your bookmarks will be synced to the cloud, just like Chrome does so it will help with this unfortunate mess.

    Hey there, I mentioned this already,, and I'm doing this now, since it's the only option,, but it takes some extra time compared to the other option when sync the bookmarks between browsers,
    Even now I still can syn bookmarks from chrome into firefox mozilla, but can't do the opposite sync from firefox to chrome!
    thanks anyway for the sharing!

    Hmm I didn't check to see if we could do that after the first time loading Chrome. I do see that there is an option to import from FF to Chrome, something I don't normally look for. I did try it and was able to import from FireFox to Chrome. It created a folder in my bookmarks called Imported from Firefox. Perhaps it was imported in a folder rather into the main toolbar in error?
