Switching from Unity to KDE deleted all my Chrome cookies
By Stefan Monov
When I switched from Unity to KDE and launched Chrome, at first the Chrome Sync feature was “disconnected” – Chrome was telling me that my Google login credentials have changed and it can’t sync to my Google account (though the title bar still displayed the Google account I was using in Chrome under Unity). I entered my login data into chrome successfully, which made Chrome Sync work. But all my cookies were gone – I was logged out of all sites.
What might have been the cause of this, and can I get my cookies back?
