Can't delete the bookmark to some webpages that are optimized for Google Chrome


#1

Problem:

I can’t delete bookmarks to certain webpages that are optimized for Google Chrome.


What happened:

  1. I bookmarked several webpages.

  2. I am now unable to delete those bookmarks.


More details:

The bookmark I am unable to delete is filed under the following location:

chrome-extension://jdbefljfgobbmcidnmpjamcbhnbphjnb/http://www.census.gov/population/projections/files/analytical-document09.pdf

If I try to access the bookmark in question, I get the following error message:

This site can’t be reached

The webpage at chrome-extension://jdbefljfgobbmcidnmpjamcbhnbphjnb/http://www.census.gov/population/projections/files/analytical-document09.pdf might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.
ERR_FAILED

HI @Marien, could you describe how you are trying to delete the bookmark? Is it via right clicking in the bookmarks toolbar and selecting delete on the bookmark for example? Or is the issue that you were not sure how to delete them?

Hi @Marien,
Is the URL in your bookmark start with chrome-extension:jdbefljfgobbmcidnmpjamcbhnbphjnb?

I can open the link you shared properly.

@brian, I think I have similiar problem.

I have tried to delete the bookmark in the following two ways:

  1. As you described, by right-clicking the bookmark and selecting delete.

  2. By moving the bookmarks to a new folder and deleting the folder. This failed because I could not move the bookmarks in question to a new folder.

Both of these methods failed. I am able to delete other bookmarks without issue.

The bookmark’s full location is:

“chrome-extension://jdbefljfgobbmcidnmpjamcbhnbphjnb/http://www.census.gov/population/projections/files/analytical-document09.pdf

I can’t edit, move, or delete it.

Still no way for me to delete / edit / move those bookmarks too.
