Importing user settings on install - make Firefox/Edge/Chrome options?

Right now when you clean-install it offers IE as user import options. Realistically the more common broweser already used will be one of Firefox, Edge or Chrome. It should be possible to at least import bookmarks and tabs, or something, for these, and would aid newcomers a lot.

Unfortunately it's impossible for us to maintain migrating from the constantly-changing profile storage formats of other browsers. We actually won't have the migrator any longer with the next milestone because, as you've seen, it's actually not very useful anymore.
