My bad.  It appears the bookmark discrepancy isn't between versions, but between caja and the file open dialog:

As for themes, try installing pluma and gedit and opening them.  Usually for me, if you haven't changed themes yet, you get very different looking UI themes, but maybe they have fixed this in later versions of Mint.

I'm being a bit off topic, but one problem I have with having both Gtk2 and Gtk3 apps is that there have been settings and theme discrepancies.  For example, I use Linux Mint MATE, and there have been some problems with bookmarks being in sync between the file open dialog in Gtk2 apps vs Gtk3 apps.  Plus, if I don't use a theme that is available in both versions of Gtk, then I end up with foreign looking apps in my environment, almost like I'm port forwarding X and getting things theme-less.  Even geany hasn't been flawless in this Gnome Civil War, with the default external file browser being nautilus, where my system uses the nearly identical caja, although I changed the setting in geany of course.

Hi Steven,

This might be a MATE issue, I run both GTK2 and GTK3 in Mint Cinnamon and havn't seen theme issues.  (default Mint theme, I'm too lazy to change it :)  If by bookmarks you mean "recently used" then it definitely updates from both, but how accurately and how regularly I havn't examined in detail.
