Description of the issue:
I spent about half an hour updating my bookmarks in MacOS the other day. It was long overdue - deleting bookmarks I didn’t need any more, renaming them, and reorganizing them into folders. Then when I went and looked in Windows, my Brave browser there hadn’t picked up the changes. (The Brave browsers are in a sync chain.) Later, when I looked on my Mac, all my changes had been undone! Somehow the changes I made on Mac were overwritten by the old bookmarks from Windows. Incredibly frustrating.
It would be nice if you included some sort of manual “save” that would tell the sync chain “these are the current bookmarks, use these now”.
How can this issue be reproduced?
I do not know if this issue is easily reproducible. There may have been quirks of my interaction that contributed to the problem. It’s possible I deleted a bookmark on Windows before it was properly synced. But the basic series of interactions was:
- Create many folders and bookmarks under the “Other Bookmarks” section
- Verify sync on Mac and Windows. (I was using Windows 7.)
- Shut down windows.
- Edit, delete, and rename many bookmarks on Mac.
- Launch Windows, and the Brave browser.
Updated bookmarks on Windows. Maintain changes on Mac.
