Unix & Linux Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for users of Linux, FreeBSD and other Un*x-like operating systems.. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I just did a fresh install of Linux Mint 15 and downloaded Chrome from the package provide by google. I logged into my account as normal, but when the bookmarks showed up, some were shorted like YouTu... and Red... .

I'm not sure what is causing this, or what determines if it gets shortened or not. Youtube, Reddit, and one of folders are shortened, and that's all. Facebook, Gmail, Wikipedia, and Twitter all display fine.

If I change the Reddit bookmark to "Twitter" it shows up perfectly fine. Changing it to "Raddit" also makes it display fine.

I don't understand why it's doing this, as it never has in the past. Has anyone else experienced this issue or have a solution?
