Using Chrome on a PC with Google search engine. The links for the websites I use the most have always stayed where I put them unless I do a cleaning of cookies, etc. Then they come back as I visit my most-used sites. Today, I clicked on a link in one of the Dope threads and suddenly all my icons on the home page were gone. I did a deletion of cookies and other crap, just in case, then went through the whole thing of going to the websites, etc.
They didn’t come back, so I rebooted the computer. Then they were there, but when I clicked for a new page, they were gone. Shut down the browser and re-open, and they’re back. Try to open a new page: gone. Right now they’re gone.
