Cannot Edit Bookmarks

Post by Skinner62 » Wed Sep 04, 2013 6:14 am

I have installed AB 2013 build 133. After AV is started I want to edit some bookmarks. Right click on bookmark select Edit and edit URL. Then Press OK. Then I want to check edited bookmark and Right click on bookmark and select Edit. URL reverted to old value not new entered.

In the same vein, Autofills cannot be edited, either; they must be recreated from scratch. Further, I'm using AB 2013 build 23 & experiencing this problem, so it has probably been true for all builds of AB 2013.

The bookmarks you use is IE favorites or Avant's bookmarks?

Same issue with me too. I have the latest Avant. But since last 6 months, I cannot edit any bookmark. The edited bookmark reverts back to the original one after clicking OK.

I use Firefox as a default rendering engine, in case it matters.

Please try this:
1 Backup and then delete your current Avant profiles.
2 Open Avant to create a new Avant profiles.
3 Copy the bookmarks folder from old Avant profiles into new profiles and replace the new bookmarks folder.
Can you edit the url? I put your bookmarks folder in my Avant profiles, all of them can be edit.
