Instead of displaying the old style tabs with text, the bookmark bar now seems to be just displaying small icons without text. I've looked in both chrome:///flags and the normal settings page and found no way to revert this annoying change. Any ideas?

Lucky! I wish I can make mine do that! What version are you on? You might also want to block out your email, sir.

Edit: Looked it up. Maybe you can fix your problem by reverse engineering this. Hit it by accident maybe?

I think it's a bug at the moment with text as clicking on the star icon or anything else doesn't display any text on the buttons.

Damn, I didn't notice that, thanks. Unfortunately however the suggestion you posted didn't work.

I use my bookmark bar like that, for people who want to do it yourselves (assuming that this is a bug), right click the link on the bar > Edit and erase anything in the 'Name' dialogue.

No problem, man. Hopefully they haven't started spamming you. :) I'm sorry my suggestion couldn't help you. Maybe you can fix it by reinstalling the app?

When you have several bookmarks from the same site, this could become a problem...

Would be nice if you could toggle labels per-bookmark and also use custom bookmark icons for websites which do not provide a default or their default sucks.

They're not ;) The 2 BBC icons are for different parts of the BBC website, and one of those with the Facebook icon has been mislabeled and isn't Facebook at all :D
