View Full Version : [SOLVED] Simple bookmark question about Chromium.

I have been using Chromium lately and love how fast it is. However, it seems to have all of my bookmarks from Firefox from when I FIRST installed it. I have ran the "import from Firefox" and it works, but the bookmarks toolbar does not seem to update.

I tried to purge chromium-browser and reinstall via terminal, but the same issue persisted.

Here is what I need to do: COMPLETELY remove anything and everything to do with Chromium, or completely reset it, and reinstall it so that it prompts me to import as a "first time use" so that I can import my now completely updated bookmarks from Firefox.

Please advise as to the location of what exactly I need to delete, because I did not see a .chromium folder in /etc or my home folder after removing Chromium, but the settings must still be somewhere.

Thank you.

sudo apt-get purge chromium-browser

You mean that this does not work??

I already ran that exact purge command, but even after I did that and re-installed it, the browser still had the original bookmarks and not the new ones, and it didn't prompt me to import anything like a "first time run", and even after manually adding the bookmarks it didn't update either.

Thank you though, any other ideas?

Delete the ~/.config/chromium folder.
When you uninstall software, their specs folders remain in your system.

just go from nautilus to...


and delete de 'Bookmarks' and 'Bookmarks.bak' files (without the '').

Hope it helps!... hey! I almost forget chromium needs to be closed.
