Since GNOME 3.10 Epiphany seems to have a bug in the import process for bookmarks. The prompt simply does not react when hitting the button, so I am searching for a proper workaround.

What did not work out: I have backups of my previous GNOME 3.8 installation, so I can access all the files. The folder .config/epiphanylists the two files bookmarks.rdfand bookmarks.xml, but editing these manually does not change anything. Launch Epiphany - the entries are gone.

What's working: I could edit the files session_state.xml and states.xml. Edits were kept after launching the application again.

Is there any other workaround or file I could edit?
