Yes, I realize that.

Since I don't like having passwords saved in the browser of my machines I've never given any attention to transferring them.
And since I don't rely upon browsing history for my work, I haven't learned about that either.
Sorry.

Short of using one of the many small utilities you can find via google search to perform the operation for you automatically, I wouldn't know how.
And never having used any of them, I can't recommend which might be effective and safe.

That's all I have for now.

Perhaps a Tech with more familiarity and expertise in this Topic will come along and offer a solution.

Google Chrome uses a Sqlite3 database to store it's history in. There is no provision in Chrome to export this so it can be imported into another borwser. FireFox and SeaMonkey both use a Sqlite DB for history now as well.

You could try something like SQLite Database Browser, see if you can extract the data that way.
