How do I restore my chrome cookies ?

Post by crankyinmv »

Sorry if this is a little off-topic.

I recently installed ulyana over an earlier installation of sylvia after not being able to log in. First, I backed up my home directory including my chrome configuration.

After that, I re-installed chrome and was able to xfer my bookmarks. However, I'm having trouble restoring cookies. Can anyone help with that ?

I tried copying the old

Code: Select all

~/.config/google-chrome/Default/Cookies
to the new

Code: Select all

~/.config/google-chrome/Default/
but chrome didn't pick it up.

Thanks.

- Mike.

Sadly, no luck with those, but I may have been mistaken about whether the copied Cookies file has been picked up.
