Hello Everyone,

I am looking for answers to a very frustrating problem with my google bookmarks account and I am confident that someone from the brain trust will have an answer.

For about the last 6 months or so, every few weeks when I click on google bookmarks it prompts me to sign in again. When I do it won't take my password. My wife's laptop does it and my 3 laptops all do it.

Initially, I would do the forgot my password routine and reset my password. Well, they won't let you use a password that has been used by you before and they won't allow weak passwords. I got sick of coming up with new passwords and decided to try uninstalling google bookmarks and re-installing it. That worked a charm, but that is getting old too.

Anyone got any answers for this or had the same problem?

Thanks,
Brian

Never heard of google bookmarks, but if your on a windows PC you might look at your hosts file. Sometimes you may have blocked a host needed for something to work. Another thing, you *have* cleared all your cookies, right? And have your cookie permissions set so google bookmarks can leave cookies if it wants to?

KeePass Password Safe

Just install it on one of those little USB pen drives, take it/use it where ever you want. You can then make the passwords as complex as you dare/want... :)
