    Sync browser fail

    Has anyone else experienced an issue getting the Sync Browser feature to work? As I understand it, that's supposed to sync my Chrome Bookmarks, yes? Everything else is syncing for me except that. And I do use Chrome and have a bunch of bookmarks that sync across computers quite nicely.

    Thanks much!

    Go to settings > accounts and sync > click your Gmail account and make sure sync browser is checked.

    There seems to be a data error. If you're getting the exclamation mark do the following.
    Untick Browser Sync on your GN and close the browser.
    Go to Google Dashboard (google.com/dashboard)
    Scroll down to Chrome and 'Stop sync and delete Data'. Fresh the window after a few minutes to make sure it says there is not data/empty.
    Go to Chrome and login for sync. Wait a few minutes then go back to Google Dashboard. See if the sync got picked up.
    If so, go back to Browser Sync and tick the box. Open op the browser app and there should be a pop up that shows your Gmail account is logging in/syncing and the folders should appear slowly.

    Brilliant! That did it. Thank you!
