old saved bookmarks GONE?

I went to website right after update (to chrome) and all my saved bookmarks are gone.  I have several important ones I need.  How do I get them back.  There is no option under the new bookmarks.

Open the chrome browser, then tap on the 3 squares at the top right, then tap on settings, then tap on the 3 squares at the top right again to get the import bookmarks option. Then tap on the option to import bookmarks from android device. You may receive a failed to import message,but when you go to the bookmarks page, most of your prior HD bookmarks should be there. You may have to re- enter some previously  saved passwords though.

Tap on the 3 squares at the top right. That's the Menu.

 

Choose 'Options' or perhaps it's named 'SEttings'.

 

Tap on the 3 squares again.

 

You should get an option to 'Import Bookmarks'. Import and they should show up.

Thank you SO much. I owe you. It said error but they were there. I knew everything about nook, even taught at work. Then some brilliant idea to throw this with no warning to us. Guess I have to find out how to use. I don't even have a button bar at bottom. Thanks again.

If you find you dont lije Chrome, there are some other browsers out there too, Dolphin and Puffin are the ones others are talking about. Theres a thread around here called "Chrome Sucks" and some others with Dolphin in the title where users are discussing the merits. 

 

Re: Angry Birds, someone mentioned elsewhere that you need to archive and unarchive it to get them to work.  You lose your progress, but oh well....

1) It always give 'import failed' message. But it imports bookmarks. 

 

2) Angry Birds will only work after you Move to Cloud and then re-download. All game data will be lost. Apps will work.

Thank You!!!

 

    All my bookmarks pulled into Chrome.  I still miss article view and Flash, but Dolphin and Firefox will do flash.
