@ssppjj Can you please clarify what you're seeing? This isn't enough information for us to be able to help you troubleshoot the issue.

  • Which version of Alfred are you using?
  • Which version of macOS are you using?
  • Did you grant Alfred Full Disk Access in the General > Request Permissions?
  • Which sources are you using, Safari and/or Chrome?

The more information you provide, the easier we'll be able to help you out :)

 

Cheers,
Vero

@ssppjj First, update to Alfred 4.0.6 to be on the current version. 

 

Next, which version of Chrome are you using? Please ensure this is also the latest.

 

And finally, when you type "bm" followed by a space, you should see this:

Do you see this until you start typing the name of a bookmark, and Alfred switches to the fallback searches? If that's the case, it means that no bookmarks are found.

 

First, try removing and re-adding Alfred to the Full Disk Access permissions in case there's corruption there.

 

Next, if you have any bookmarks in Safari, add Safari by checking the box next to it. This will help establish that there are indeed bookmarks being found, just none from Chrome. At that stage, you'll need to ensure you're looking at the correct Chrome profile, etc... 

 

Please provide as much information as possible if you'd like further support, as you're not currently giving any details that might help troubleshoot this.

 

Cheers,
Vero

Vero asked what you see when you type "bm", not when you type "bm asdf". Please follow the instructions she gave you. You aren't providing enough details for us to help you.

 

Sorry but I cannot as `bm` shows private content only (the search results).

Well, those aren't bookmarks. Is the "Search Bookmarks…" item anywhere in the results?

 

It would be helpful if you would disable the workflow that is returning those results while trying to debug the bookmarks feature.
