My computer gets extremely slow.  If I look at the task manager (which can take 5 minutes to load) it shows I am out of memory because Edge is taking up sever GB.
Since I don't seem to be able to fix that, I want to leave Edge; but I have lots of favorites and don't want to abandon them. Is there any way to move favorites from Edge to anything?  I have seen many solutions on google, but they all seem to be obsolete.

I prefer Chrome to FF so have included the steps for migrating to that, see the 1-2-3 steps in my attached screenshot + the copy/paste information below;

First, export your bookmarks from the browser as an HTML file. Then, import your bookmarks into Chrome:
 
On your computer, open Chrome.
In the top right, click More More.
Select Bookmarks and then Import Bookmarks and Settings.
In the "From" drop-down menu, select Bookmarks HTML file.
Select Choose File.
Upload the saved HTML.
Click Finished.
If you haven't created any bookmarks in Chrome, the bookmarks will show up in the bookmarks bar. 
 
If you already have bookmarks in Chrome, the bookmarks will be in a new folder labelled "Imported from…" 

 

 

Edit by phillpower2: OP has advised here that the issue has been resolved by changing to Chrome.
