Bookmarks without a name do not appear in the exported bookmarks.html file?

Posted

I have a few bookmarks that I have created without a name (I just left it blank at the point of creation). In this way they conveniently appear as just the website icon on the bookmarks toolbar and save up a lot of space.

When I export my bookmarks to an .html file however, all the nameless bookmarks are left out of it. I would expect there to be a default name created for these to be included in the file, such as the website URL for examples.

Thanks

They are probably present in the backup file if you check the file content (right-click: View Page Source), but they won't show as a clickable item because of the missing name.

This is how I'm doing this:

File -> Bookmarks -> Show All Bookmarks -> Import and Backup -> Export Bookmarks to HTML

That makes sense. You're right, they're in the back up file without a name in the <a> tag.

Thank you.
