Hello,

  1. Exit Chrome.
  2. In Firefox, click the ≡ Menu button, then choose Preferences. (you can also just enter about:preferences into the location bar to get there)
  3. On the Preferences tab, enter saved logins into the search box.
  4. From the search results, click the Saved Logins… button.
  5. In the Saved Logins box that pops up, click the Import… button near the bottom right.
  6. Select the browser you want to import from, then click the Next button and follow any other on-screen directions.
For a screenshot, see Password manager - viewing and deleting passwords.

FYI: Just wanted to let you know that in that article it states that the import feature is Windows only. No way to do it on a Mac (yet).

Oh, thanks. The support page doesn't show Windows users that warning. Importing passwords isn't available on Linux either.

Some people have suggested BitWarden.
