Hi @delaRiva805, Welcome to Community!
Are there any error messages telling you it failed or do you just not see the info imported?

Also, you could try manually exporting bookmarks from Chrome and then importing them to Brave:
Importing In Brave:
Go to brave://bookmarks/ and click on the 3 dot menu at the top right, and you’ll see the import option.

Exporting In Chrome:
Similar to the above - Go to chrome://bookmarks/ and click on the 3 dot menu at the top right, and you’ll see the export option.

Hey Aaron, thanks for responding. The auto-import option from Firefox worked great, but not from Chrome; even so, I ended up bringing everything manually and it worked just fine.

Thanks again for the help, much appreciated.

Hi @Bravissima, Welcome to Community!
I’ve detailed above how to manually export/import bookmarks.
The bookmarks will export as a .html file, the same file will be taken by Brave.

We also have a Help Center article talking about import/export
Please see the How do I export bookmarks from Brave as an HTML file? section
