    Thunar bookmarks (randomly???) disappearing and have to be RE-setup. Bug?

    This has happened a few times now. I will say my older teen children have been using my computer more lately. I wouldn't say they couldn't be doing this. But is there such a bug?

    I assume they have not simply chosen to use the tree view in the left hand pane with Ctrl+E?
    If so return to bookmarks view with Ctrl+B

    For extra safety keep a backup of the /home/<user>/.config/gtk-3.0/bookmarks file and restore if if necessary.

    Thanks for the reply. Still do have tree view but they are gone.

    Good idea on the backup. Makes it a lot faster to repair all of my bookmarks. I wouldn't have thought of this!

    Perhaps also create dedicated user accounts for yourself separated from your teenager users.
    And change password.
