Bookmark Sync is not syncing

Unfortunately back to Chrome while bookmarks sync gets sorted out.
Simply too important to my workflow. (work mac , home mac, iPhone, iPad) to do without.

New version of Brave pretends to fix the issue, but it most definitely does not. I went into brave://flags to re-enable sync and relaunched. There was an immediate crash and after manually editing the config file to switch off sync, I managed to get back in. Unfortunately all my open tabs were gone.

Be warned that this update does not fix the sync issues.

New release has not fixed the issues. I went into brave://flags to re-enable sync and relaunched, there was an immediate crash and all tabs are gone after restoring.

Is there any update on when this issue is going to be fixed?

I checked the latest release V1.7.98 and it is a bit better, but still broken.

Instead of crashing the browser immediately, it stays open for maybe a minute before crashing. My guess is that it starts to sync and then crashes out.
