Bookmark search does not work


#1

“Show bookmark matches” does not work, results from bookmarks are not shown on address bar and/or on dropdown.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. install brave, add some bookmarks
  2. go to Settings -> Ssearch -> Search Bar Options.
  3. disable everyting else than “Show bookmark matches”
  4. exit settings
  5. select address bar, type partial name / partial url on some site you added on step 1

Expected result:
match is shown on address bar (“autocomplete”) and on dropdown

Actual result:
no matches

Hi @Olli,

Currently, bookmarks is tied with history. Enable Show history matches will show bookmarks as suggestion.

Best,

Why is that? If history matches is enabled, then there is mostly uselss results. For example I’d like to visit www.example.com, brave shows www.example.com/news/article+from+few+days+ago.html as first result.
