unable to sync Google Chrome
« on: February 08, 2013, 01:32:46 AM »
Hi, all -

I used to be able to see all my bookmarks -- mobile and desktop -- on my N7.

Now I only see the mobile bookmarks.

I go into Chrome 's settings, tap my acct, turn on sync -- but as soon as I leave that screen, sync turns off again. I've cleared cache and data, tried to turn on sync again, same results.

I went into settings, then my Google acct and did a sync all -- and all my accts synced except Chrome and Blogger.

Suggestions? How do I turn on auto sync for Chrome?

Cheers, and thanks.
- martyh

You could try uninstalling the updates, clear data and sync...

You try signing out and back in too...

Are you using the Chrome beta?

JayJ --

No, I'm not using Chrome Beta, but just Chrome for Android.

Funny thing: After I posted my help request yesterday.... I don't recall what I was doing on the N7, but a pop-up appeared informing me that a number of apps (it listed Chrome as well as Dropbox, and probably one or two others) needed to be synced -- so I clicked on the button, and all was well with the world.

I left my post up hoping that someone would suggest something that would get me to the same point as that pop-up. Still don't know what caused it, but the Android OS must have realized my problem.

If only the N7 was always so intuitive!
Cheers,
