You don't "transfer".

You export from one and import to the other. Both browsers have built-in import/export functions.

For a one off go into the bookmarks/favorites manager in the browser and use the export option

If you are using both browsers on a regular basis and wish to synchronise the lists have a look at Xmarks

Firefox is easy. Just click File > Import and choose the browser from which you want to import the bookmarks.
