Brave changing default Bookmark folder when Bookmark moved

Saving a bookmark to a folder, then manually moving it to another folder, causes Brave to use the target folder as the new default for saving the next bookmark. Irritating! And causes me to keep saving bookmarks to subfolders accidentally, then having to go digging for them.

  1. Navigate to webpage, click Bookmark button, enter details & save bookmark to a folder.
  2. Open Bookmark folder (from Bookmarks bar) & manually drag / drop bookmark to a different folder or subfolder.
  3. Repeat step 1, but the default folder already selected is now the target folder from step 2!

Expected result: That Brave remembers the bookmark folder that I SAVED the last bookmark to, in Step 1. Manually moving bookmarks around afterwards should not affect this whatsoever!

Version 1.9.80 Chromium: 81.0.4044.138 (Official Build) (64-bit)](

Is there a github issue or anything around this? I keep losing bookmarks as the default folder keeps switching!
