Edge (Sync) Favourites Toasted



  • I did a write-up of what happened here: http://blog.mpecsinc.ca/2018/09/warning-edge-sync-ate-all-favourites.html

    Make sure to back up the Favourites in Edge after a solid day of adding links. 😞



  • At least you were able to recover most of your bookmarks!

    Edit: I have also started using NextCloud and the Bookmarks app. No syncing required to get the Bookmarks on all your devices. There are even apps that will let you add bookmarks from your mobile devices too.



  • That is why I never use Edge! Way worse than IE in my opinion.... It may be faster, but it has so many issues it's unbelievable.



  • Edge has pretty much shown us that Microsoft will never be able to build a decent browser. In fact, they should just give up IMO.

    Unfortunately not. I lost the week's worth of bookmark/favourites that were a part of the project. 😞

    There's a small silver lining: All code and PowerShell tweaks/steps that got modified in VSCode had a direct HTTP/HTTPS link commented into the line so it's not a total loss. 😛

    Up until about a week ago with the last round of updates Edge was behaving really well. In fact, the only time I'd had to pull out Firefox was in troubleshooting what is looking to be a ShareBand problem (we have a bonded vDSL 25/5 pair) that caused larger downloads to stall and die.

    Strange... I have had a ton of compatibility issues with Edge and I barely use it. I will say it is definitely faster than IE, but definitely less compatible than IE, Firefox, or Chrome.

    I thought Edge showed that they HAD given up.
