**Description of the issue: **
The html file containing the exported bookmarks from Brave browser shows a blank page when opened in any browser including Brave. When I import them nothing shows up as well.
How can this issue be reproduced?
- Export bookmarks as an html file
- Try to open the file or import the bookmarks to any browser
A blank page if you open it
Nothing shows up if you import the file to a browser
Brave Version( check
I really need to recover my bookmarks. I will be more than happy if I can solve it. I can send the file if you like.
Do you see your bookmarks, when you use the Brave Browser Bookmarks Manager?
The thing is I removed Brave browser from my old pc. I am using Brave browser and some others on my new pc. The result is the same. So, no I don’t.
The new PC . . . do you see your bookmarks, when you use the Brave Browser Bookmarks Manager?
I don’t see my old bookmarks. I only see the ones that I recently saved.
On your OLD PC, can you . . .
Copy the actual Bookmarks files to an attached USB drive.
Bookmarks and Bookmarks.bak files:
I had removed Brave browser from my old pc. I assume those files are not available. Do you think those files will be available regardless? Because I have to travel to access to my old pc.
Do not assume that the actual Bookmarks files on the OLD PC, are not there . . . because . . . that would depend upon what type of UN-INSTALL of Brave Browser on that OLD PC, you ran.
The BraveSoftware folder (see path in previous reply) and its sub-folders/contents, may still exist. Worth a look.
If you find the files, then save them to a USB drive.
On your NEW PC, use the Brave Browser Bookmarks Manager to export the few, NEW bookmarks to a ‘bookmarks.html’ file - give it a filename that distinguishes the file as new: ‘bookmarks_NEWER.html’
Next, on the NEW PC, replace the two, relatively un-used files:
. . . with the same-named files from the OLD PC.
OF COURSE, Brave Browser is not running, when you do that!
Then, on the NEW PC, start up Brave Browser and look over the [old, recovered] bookmarks, using the Bookmarks Manager.
Then, import the few, new bookmarks from the ‘bookmarks_NEWER.html’ file.
Unfortunately, those bookmark files were gone even though some user data files were intact. What do I do now? What can I do about the html file in my hand? Can anyone recover that for me?
