BleachBit erases thumbnails from bookmarks in Chrome

Forums: 

Recently, BleachBit removes the thumbnails on my Google Chrome (10.0.648.82 beta, although it did this last under v9 beta, too) toolbar and in my bookmarks. To get them back, I have to click on each and every bookmark...HUNDREDS...in order for the thumbnail to reload. I had unchecked thumbnails and thumbs in BleachBit before I ran it today and it still removed all of my bookmark thumbnails.

By thumbnails, I think you mean the 16x16 icons that Google Chrome also uses as tab icons? Those are called favicons. I confirm this when choosing Google Chrome - History in BleachBit 0.8.7 with Google Chrome stable 9.0.597. For now a workaround is to avoid the History option or to whitelist the file Archived History: on Linux the path is ~/.config/google-chrome/Default/Archived History. BleachBit allows whitelisting in the preferences menu.

I will check more into it. Thanks for the report

For cross reference, this is bug bug #734380. For the workaround in BleachBit 0.8.7, you may need to whitelist 'History' (which includes recent history) instead of 'Archived History', or you may avoid the whole History option for Google Chrome/Chromium.
