Recently I tried to reset my google-chrome settings by deleting
~/.config/google-chrome which I hoped would then sync with all the settings I have on my other computer.
Now, however, I can only see my bookmarks. I can't add any more bookmarks, and one add-on ( adblocker ) appears next to my address bar, but gives an error.
sudo apt-get purge google-chrome-stable
and then reinstalling and nothing changes.
