Unescaped bookmarks are replaced with "incorrecturl" although they work in chrome & firefox

Chrome supports bookmarks whose URIs are not URI-encoded, such as "javascript:" and "data:" (e.g. "javascript:alert('hello');"). Firefox automatically encodes them when adding a new bookmark.

EverSync loses the URI and replaces it with "incorrecturl". It can also overwrite working bookmarks. I'm sure most of your users have never experianced it but for programmers this is EXTREMLY annoying. It also affects non-technical users that use such bookmarks to open the current page in Google Translate or compares an Amazon products to similer results in eBay.

I HATE THIS. I just lost several significant bookmarklets that I use frequently and this is a real pain in the ass.

Uninstalling EverSync immediately because of this.

Hello! Can you explain what problem did you have with EverSync exactly? 

You have problems syncing code?

For example you can't sync   javascript:alert('hello');   between Chrome and Firefox?
