Help me make Google Chrome OPEN the Bookmarks Manager.  I have already gone through the menu, Bookmarks, Bookmark manager, but only a blank white page appears.  Nothing else.  The address shown in the browser text bar field is "chrome://bookmarks" .

If the bookmark manager cannot open and show itself, then managing the bookmarks is impossible.  HELP!

 

 

Windows 7, Google Chrome  43.0.2357.81 m

I already tried with ABP turned off, and the same problem.

Note that Google Chrome provides a button next to minimize, maximize and close buttons. This button is used to sign in using the Google account and the browser uses it to manage the bookmarks and other things.

You must sign in using your Google account and then the Bookmark Manager will return to normal.

Why should signing in to a google account be necessary in order to open the bookmarks manager?  Doing so has never been necessary.  The bookmarks have nothing to do with a google account.  I do have a google account, but I never have needed any such account to use the bookmarks manager in the browser.  Why should doing so been needed now?  What if I had no google account?  Would I then need to sign up for a google account to use the bookmarks system normally?

 

Somebody -  What is this?  How can I make the Bookmarks Manager of google chrome open properly and show me the Manager?

Since I don't use chrome, I can't verify if it works or not.

Not clear if this is related, but google have installed "double authentication" over past week & it is messing with a lot of software that goes via google. Thus I use gmail within Mozilla Thunderbird, & everytime I open TB I now get a request to login to "google contacts". I can just cancel (ie no need to actually log in) but needless to say, an absolute pain in nether region. Sounds to me like the buggy "security fix" of google - see also "irritating google pop up ..." posted yesterday. If Bookmarks manager is an add-on, disable (not very helpful), use Firefox instead, & COMPLAIN TO GOOGLE. Good luck R

That method worked.  Thanks!
