google bookmarks using firefox doesn't work

Postby truenewbie on Mon Jun 23, 2008 10:18 pm

Just installed Mint and it is superb!! One problem--the Google bookmark feature using Firefox doesn't work. The bookmark area shows up on the toolbar, but no bookmarks show up when clicked. Any thoughts?? THANKS!!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

There are several add ons for google bookmarks and maybe the one you use is not compatible with FF3

I switched from Google Bookmarks to Foxmarks, a FF add-on. It works very well.
Peace be with you.

Thanks very much--I haven't really had much time to look at plugins, but that sounds awesome. Husse suggested trying another version of FF, also. THANKS!!!

It's a known bug. Google suggests installing the official mozilla build from the website, but I think I will wait.

Has anyone tried the version directly from the website instead of any Mint versions?
