Need help with Chromium Browser

Using Debian Squeeze.
I installed Chromium Browser. I am having trouble finding a way to import my bookmarks into this browser as well as settings for things like font size. Also have trouble on forums. When I preview or post from Chromium all paragraphs get condensed into one, and I can't use the edit button to fix it.

I have Iceweasel installed, but won't allow me to view certain sites. Even installed esr from backports, but that didn't help, and sinse my last update today I can't open it.

Appreciate any help.

I am using Version 22.0.1229.94 Debian wheezy/sid (161065) of Chromium. I am not sure how different, if at all, the Squeeze version is.

In the menu on the top right go to settings. You can also type this in the address bar, chrome://chrome/settings/ Then towards the bottom it has a user section. Add new user, Delete this user, import bookmarks and settings.

That is where it is at, try it and see if it works. Worked great for me but I am using the wheezy/testing version. Also in that top right menu, it has three horizontal lines as an icon for me, where you found the settings is a zoom option. See if that helps at all with the fonts. If not there is an option in the settings section to change the webcontent font size. Click advanced settings to get to it.

To see what version of Chromium you are using you can either click on the about link in the menu or type chrome://chrome in the address bar. For more detailed information type chrome://version in the address bar.

Import settings from another browser - Google Chrome Help -

Try creating a new Iceweasel profile or move the .mozilla directory. I use Firefox 100% of the time and have yet in 8 years of running Debian sid came across a site Iceweasel/Firefox didn't work.
