2. In the Mac menu bar at the top of the screen, click Go.
3. Select Go to Folder.
4. Enter the following directories in the text field, then press Go.
~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/
5. Locate the folder called "Default" in the directory window that opens and rename it as "Backup default."
6. Try opening Google Chrome again. A new "Default" folder is automatically created as you start using the browser.
Let me know the results.
