There is a fucked up issue between Chromium and Firefox. Somehow, Chromium sabotages Firefox's ability to import specific Chromium bookmarks. Even regular control-d bookmarking gets broken once I visit certain chromium "store" (extensions) pages.

So I am forced to keep a list here.

I would have done this anyways, eventually, but what the fuck guys.. how does bookmarking get broken?

[update] I was able to cure this issue with Firefox by exporting, deleting then re-importing my bookmarks. More specifically deleting my current stuff and restoring from an internal backup. Firefox is fucking retarded, and this is the sort of consequence that comes from an overly-complex mechanic like using a database. Well.. I think a web browser should only display web pages, not manage bookmarks.

Tested 2014-01-21 on Lubuntu 13.10, updated recently.

  • Firefox 26.0
  • Chromium Version 31.0.1650.63 Ubuntu 13.10 (31.0.1650.63-0ubuntu0.13.10.1~20131204.1)
