I searched for this problem and found a thread about it. Then months later the problem is still happening for me. I’m using POP!_OS. When I open the Bookmarks Manager to view bookmarks in a folder two levels deep (bookmarks manager>folder>folder>individual bookmarks) I will be looking at the bookmarks reading them (I’ve got lots in this folder) and after a few seconds the page will shift to the top of the list.
For added information, the first jump happens about ten seconds after scrolling to the bottom of the list. Then after it jumps and I return it to the bottom, it took twenty-two seconds. Then after returning it to the bottom it took longer.
While making this report it stopped for three minutes. I wondered what had happened. So I closed that tab and opened a new Bookmarks Manager page. I navigated to the folder with that long list and scrolled to the bottom. Within ten seconds it jumped. The next was longer as written above. This problem makes it very difficult to find what I want because of the constant shifting. If this list were just of ten things I would have found the thing before the shift happens.
I have a similar issue with Brave 1.42.88 on Windows 10.
In the bookmark manager, whenever something (doesn’t matter bookmark or folder) is moved or deleted, the user gets sent back to the top of the list. This happens TWICE: once when the ‘undo’ option pops up at the bottom of the window, and again when the ‘undo’ disappears if the user has tried to scroll while the ‘undo’ was still visible. It is extremely annoying when the bookmark list is long.
I have observed this behavior across different versions of Brave on several machines belonging to different users, so I doubt it is in any way connected to the profile. In my experience (since June 2021) the bookmark manager has ALWAYS behaved in this way. I (and others) have simply lived with it, but when I came across this thread I thought I would chime in.
It would be nice if the user were left at the change site: the deletion point, or where something was moved from (if moved to another folder), or where something was moved to (if moved within the same folder). There is no reason to keep redrawing the list from the top and less reason to keep moving the user there.
