Bug Description

Binary package hint: chromium-browser

chromium 10.0.648.205 (81283) on Ubuntu 11.04 beta 2 does not import bookmarks properly from firefox. After deleting ~/.config/chromium and starting chromium, I was offered to import the bookmarks, saved passwords etc... from firefox. I selected a few options and launched the import process. The bookmarks were not imported, even though the rest was. Now every time chromium is restarted it offers to import the bookmarks, but always fails to do so.

Looks like this bug is still valid. With chromium 62, when I browse to chrome://settings/importData and choose to import bookmarks from firefox, nothing happens, and I'm seeing the following errors in the console:

(that's with chromium 63.0.3239.30, not 62)

And that's with firefox version 56.0.
