Question: You can’t change your bookmarks right now because they are being synchronized. Wait a few minutes, and then try again.

Hi there. I'm running Safari v. 11.1. For the past few weeks, I get the above error when trying to add/edit bookmarks. I tried removing Safari from iCloud synch, but no change. I also found some solutions from several years ago that involve removing the bookmarks etc. But, users reported it doesn't always work.


Does anyone have a solution? Thanks.

iPhone 8, iOS 10, and Mac running Sierra

Answer:

Thanks, Eric, and sorry for the delay. I did try disconnecting from the internet, and that didn't work. I didn't try Etrecheck.


But, after restarting the Mac this morning, the problem is suddenly resolved. I don't know if restarting solved it, because I tried that a week or so ago with no result.


Anyway, thanks again for your suggestions.

Open a page you want to bookmark, then try disconnecting from the Internet, and see if you can add the bookmark. Connect to the Internet and see if it continues to give you the error message. Your post is the first post I've read with this problem.
