Many users have noted that the built in importer used to import browsing data from other browsers doesn’t always function as intended.
This issue is seemingly not dependent on platform, browser being imported from, or browsing data being imported. I’ve created this topic to capture user reports in order to help reveal any common links between them so that we can solve the underlying issue.
What we would like to know
Given that this issue doesn’t seem to have any (obvious) common thread, we would like to consolidate some of this data into a more easily viewable format. If you have (or are currently) encountered this issue with the importer, would you mind replying below and telling us:
- What browser were you attempting to import from?
Where you attempting to import all browsing data, or only certain select data? That is – which check boxes were checked when you attempted import?
- Of the data selected to be imported, which data (checked boxes) were successfully imported?
- Did you try to import selecting only one box at a time? If so, did this work for any of them?
- Operating System and Brave version (as always)
