    Easiest to export FF bookmarks as HTML file and import that into any browser you want. Good way to have a backup on hand too.

    Well, this is weird. I have been using Edge BETA Chromium for some time, and now I have installed the final version of Edge. But it could not import settings, passwords aso from Edge BETA. Do I have an error or is this normal??

    I installed and uninstalled pretty quick! I will wait until stable complete version will continue using Microsoft Edge Canary !

    Edge://flags isn't available in Android version if that's what you mean to say in the last line.
    Yeah, I know it's not accessible in Android. I meant on laptops or other portable PCs like the Surface products that run on battery. I should have worded that differently.

    Edit: A few other flags that can potentially help with battery life:
    Enable lazy image loading
    Enable lazy frame loading
    Tab freeze
    Turn off caching of streaming media to disk
    Show block option in autoplay settings

    I've been on Edge Canary for many months and everything except Chrome Store add-ons and the new Collections were imported. Did your favorites import correctly ?
    If you sign-in with a MS account, turn 'sync' on (select what you need synced, like passwords) in Beta, close, open new Edge and turn sync on.

    No problems for me - just had to enable extensions for LastPass and AdBlock. All bokmarks imported A-OK. I couldn't find a way to get it to start with a totally blank page - just a minor annoyance. But there is no smooth scrolling extension which has become a requirement for me. So I'll be sticking with Chrome for a while longer.

    While it may be tempting to switch to the new Edge right away, users need to be aware that core features are not available yet. The biggest missing feature at the time of writing is that some synchronization options, syncing of the browsing history or extensions, is not supported yet.
