I apologize for the late response on this particular issue. We’ve had several reports after recent updates with
about:bookmarks. The error is likely rooted in the Muon front-end which Brave is run on. As you may know, we are currently very close to fully transitioning away from this build of Brave and into Brave 1.0 which is built with Chromium’s native UI.
While I understand it’s not the answer you want to hear, it’s unlikely that this issue will be resolved before we roll out 1.0. There’s always a chance, but I don’t want to get anyones hopes up. Since we’re so close to the v1.0 release, our dev team has been migrating several issues from our Browser-Laptop Github repository to our Brave-Core repository and trying to parse out what will or won’t be addressed before 1.0.
What I can confirm is that all open “bookmarks” related issues will be fixed in 1.0 - including the topic of this thread (and everything inside). The launch is set to be just a few months from now, with a beta releasing sometime before then. If you’d like to see what we’ve been working on, you can grab a Developer channel release now. Its worth mentioning that the current Dev build is a work in progress - the build is still early, and prone to some stability errors. It’s also not “feature complete”, that is, Brave specific features like, Payments, Tor, Sync, and UI elements still have yet to be added.
Even given that, the build is great and worth at least checking out (I’m using it to write this reply!). You can find it on our releases page. Thank you all for your patience and support. We promise it’ll be worth the wait!
