|Chrome Sync - Bookmarks Toolbar (or bar) not in sync and another issue||fonduekid||6/30/12 1:25 PM|
I had this issue with duplicate bookmarks after installing Chrome browser and enabling Sync on my Android Phone / Android Tablet (both running ICS).
But I managed to fix this issue by un-installing the app, deleting the Chrome data that was in sync with my Google account (through the Google Dashboard) and then reinstalling Chrome browser.
Now, I see that the Bookmarks toolbar sync does not happen (I cannot see the bookmarks toolbar that I have on the Chrome Browser on my laptop, in my mobile Chrome browser). I have noticed couple of other threads with similar issues but I haven't seen a solution anywhere...
Another issue I have is that, in my mobile Chrome browser, in the bookmarks tab, there are three options - Desktop Bookmarks, Other bookmarks and mobile bookmarks.
What exactly is "Desktop Bookmarks"? I am asking because, all my bookmarks folders (except the bookmarks bar) that I have in my Chrome browser in the laptop show up in "Other bookmarks".
Thanks in advance... Cheers.

Alright, now this is a big time mess with the bookmarks in Google Chrome. I have some to love Google Chrome, but I also have to be honest to say that I'm incredibly fed up with the way bookmarks are being synchronized. It's a major disaster that I see and I am surprised I see no one else is seeing a similar issue (though there was one Google+ user who posted about this a month ago.. and he was furious!)
I have deleted all my data from Google Dashboard, disabled sync in Google Chrome across all my devices (Laptop with Win 7, Work Desktop with Win 7, Asus Transformer Prime with ICS and Samsung Galaxy S2 with ICS).. I then imported my bookmarks which I had saved previously as a HTML file.
I re-enabled sync in Google Chrome and what happens now is that, every time I close Chrome and open it, the bookmarks are getting doubled, tripled..... and this is worse when I open / close the browser at home, and then come to work and open the browser on my work desktop.. and even worse, when I log on to chrome on my mobile...
Every time, the bookmark toolbar gets loaded with multiple copies of the bookmarks.. Not only the bookmarks toolbar, but also the other bookmarks.
The open tabs sync seems to work OK, but the bookmarks sync is a total mess :(
Does anyone have any clue for how to fix this issue? Rather, is there a fix at all for this issue or is this a known issue and Google Chrome dev's are working on it?
I'm close to giving up on Google Chrome for the moment, or simply disable the bookmarks sync altogether and just go back to using XMarks (which by the way works incredibly well.. even across different browsers > Chrome / Firefox).
Hoping for a quick fix to this because I love Chrome other than this issue.. it's faster, snappy and cool to use (if I just turn a blind eye to the bookmark mess).
