I use Windows XP. Despite deleting history and using SQLite Database Browser to change the URL rank in
%localappdata%\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default, as soon as I launch Chrome and exit again, it changes the URL rank.
On re-launching, the New Tab icons seem to be in random sequence and include sites that I have only visited once - even though a couple of favourite sites visited many times do not appear. Two blank icons are included that I cannot get rid of.
If I exit and reload, sometimes two of the icons on New Tab disappear after a few seconds, to be replaced by inactive blank icons that have a black border.
If I switch from New Tab to another open tab, then back to the New Tab, the sequence has changed again - with a blank icon at position number one, and a second one elsewhere. They are all over the place without logic, and driving me crazy.
Can anybody help?
