Default Synched Bookmarks from MB not working?

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys, new BB user here.

I synched my MB to my BB using PocketMac and all went well, i think.

When I go to Bookmark Manager on my BB all of my MB bookmarks are there.

The problem is that when I click "Open Bookmark", nothing happens.

I'm sure there is some little thing that I'm missing and you BB pros will figure it out quickly.

Thanks
Kevin

Have you tried doing a battery pull? If not, pull out the battery for about 30 to 60 sec. Then put it back in. You do not have to shut off the BB when you pull the battery.

Thanks for the reply

I just pulled the battery and still the same problem.

All of my sites come up but clicking Open Bookmark still does nothing, which stinks.

I try to use PM for as little as possible. The app isn't all it should or could be. The only things I have PM do is sync my contacts and mail. I use GoogleSync and BusySync for my calendar. If I were you I would put my bookmarks in manually. Most of the time, unless the website is optimized for a BB, they will not display properly.

I guess I was expecting electronic bliss with my new toy.

Maybe a few years down the road we'll be able to sync all of our electronics/appliances/cars together into one happy family.

Several people on other forum sites have mentioned this problem. This led me to discover that I had it also. It seems that this functionality broke when PM was updated to the latest version. I contacted PM and (eventually) received an e-mail saying that this was a issue with the current PM version and is unresolved at this point.
