Description of the issue:
I really gave it a 100% try yesterday to ditch Chrome and switch to Brave. Since Brave Sync only does Bookmarks for now, I had to painstakingly set up all my settings, extensions etc “just right” on 2 Macs but eventually was pretty happy.
Then, out of the blue all my Bookmarks just decided to randomly scramble themselves up on Mac #2. I thought it was a glitch so I carefully put them all back into place, only to find that some minutes later, now they are scrambled on Mac #1. Ugh.
I use my Bookmarks Bar heavily and rely on icons being where I want them for muscle memory to open my favorite sites. This seems like a small annoyance but it was a deal breaker for me and reluctantly I went back to Chrome for now. I still have Brave installed and will definitely look to try it again after 1.x.x gets a few rounds of bugfixes (hope!).
Found some links to other reports of basically the exact same issue:
