It is a real pest when these go missing.
This appears to be a standard solution
Bookmarks should be stored in:
This directory no longer existed.
However, two new directories had been created:
`/Users/jv/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Profile 2` `/Users/jv/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/profile 3`
Thus my Bookmarks had been deleted.
First retrieve Bookmarks from backup.
Then, reconfigure Chrome:
- Closed all Chrome windows
- Killed all Chrome tasks
(ps -ef \| grep -i chrome)
- sign in
- OK, Got it
- Close chrome and all chrome processes.
- Copy Bookmark to /Users/jv/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default/Bookmark
- Start chrome
- sign in, if needed
Browser has the correct bookmarks.
