"Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token ILLEGAL"

Chrome 4.1.249.1064 (45376)
Sync is going on 1+day. Would like to stop so I can log out then in to another acct. (entered wrong acct. both have lots of bookmarks; mostly similar). Won't let me close or sign out.

btw, wish there was a good duplicate checker on xmarks

Found in log:
Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token ILLEGAL

Thanks,
Scott

    solved this by installing latest version of Chrome (or by restarting Chrome?). Now get this message when I try to sync:
    "Sync Error: Error with download response"

  • Hi,

    It's hard to tell exactly what's going on without some more information from the log file, but the original SyntaxError looks like an exception from Chrome itself, not from our extension (the subsequent Sync Error is most likely a result of the SyntaxError). That leaves me to believe that requests we're making to our server are coming back malformed, which usually happens if you have some sort of firewall that's accidentally messing our requests up.

    One way you can try to work around this is to go to our advanced settings tab and setting encryption to none. Can you reproduce the error after turning that off?

    What a difference a moment makes.

    The catch was in Options / Advanced / Connection security. It had to be encrypt all.
