Yeah, this is a big problem for me. It is really a hassle to spend the time setting up a bookmark, and then just need to change one thing but have to go through the tedious process of searching for it on a separate page.
Honestly it just doesn’t make much sense to me. Just about every other browser works the opposite way. Including the desktop version of Brave itself! And I can’t see this as anything other than a net inconvenience. If the bookmark button brought up the edit page you could easily delete your bookmark from that page anyways, taking only two clicks. While searching for your bookmark to edit it is pretty much always going to take many more clicks. Accidentally deleting a bookmark and needing to re-name and locate it will also take many more clicks.
Even if you wanted to delete a lot of bookmarks quickly, it would be much faster to delete them from the bookmark menu in bulk anyways, so this is pretty useless for that.
Really this is only really useful for people who are constantly accidentally bookmarking things. But realistically people are going to be intentionally wanting to press that button way more often then they press it unintentionally. And for anyone who wasn’t using bookmarks much and thus rarely presses it intentionally, this isn’t even a big difference for them since they could get rid of bookmarks very quickly before anyways. This really seems like it just makes bookmarks less useful for anyone actually trying to use them with little benefit to those who don’t.
At least if a edit bookmark button appeared in the menu there would still be some level of convenience here, but as is, it is pretty much just a hassle with little to no purpose
