    I am using Google Chrome 8.0.552.215 on my Mac (running OSX 10.6.5).

    I can't get Chrome sync working properly. I had everything setup and working properly this morning between my iMac and my Mac Pro, but then I noticed that my bookmarks didn't import properly from Firefox (I'd imported my bookmarks from Firefox into Chrome on my Mac Pro just prior to initially setting up Chrome Sync).

    I decided to delete all of the bookmarks from Chrome on my Mac Pro, then immediately reimport them a second time (making sure to fix the issue that caused my initial problem this second time around). For some strange reason, this has somehow completely screwed up Chrome sync, which doesn't sync anything anymore (bookmarks, extensions, etc...)

    I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Chrome, but still no luck!

    I've logged into my Google Dashboard and deleted all of the Chrome Sync Data, waited a good half hour, then tried setting up Chrome sync again... Google Dashboard does show that data is being synced from this first machine, but then when I set it up on the second computer (with a completely clean install of Chrome), the data never makes it there!

    I am at a complete loss here. I've even tried using an alternate Google Account, but that didn't work either!

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated... Thanks!

    Well this reply isn't very helpful, but I'm having similar problems with Chrome Sync. Running the latest versions of SL and Chrome on a blackbook and a new Mac mini, the only thing that syncs is bookmarks. Apps, extensions, autofill etc, won't sync at all. Does this actually work for anyone?

    I have the same version of Chrome installed today on my 10.6.5. Synced with my google account and its working perfectly. It synced everything, apps, bookmarks, extensions.

    Give this a try:

    In the Chrome preferences, turn off Sync.

    Quit Chrome

    Go to Macintosh HD > Users > [YOURUSER] > Library > Application Support > Google > Chrome > Default

    Delete the file: Web Data

    Start Chrome

    Turn Sync back on

    That's worked for me. Hopefully it helps.
