Description of the issue:
I initially got Brave for mobile (android phone). Then I got the desktop browser (on linux). I set up sync. Sync was very problematic, but eventually I got my open tabs from the phone open on desktop as well.
But now, when I open Brave on my phone, almost all of my open tabs have been removed from my tab groups and are mixed up all out of order. It’s complete chaos.
I re-made tab groups on the desktop and regrouped everything, but this did not regroup them on my phone. Is there any way to fix this, or is the phone browser just going to be unusable until I can go through 90+ tabs one by one to regroup them AGAIN? And will they stay where I put them, or will Brave keep shuffling them around randomly?
Is there any way to tell Brave to keep my tabs in the tab groups that I put them in? Or at very least, keep my tab order the same; even if I lose the groups, if the overall tab order could be kept the same, I can work with that. But when everything gets moved around, I don’t know where anything is, and the browser is unusable.
And how exactly does sync work, ie, when and how do changes get synched? I have read Brave’s page on sync, but it does not answer my question:
I made some changes on desktop, waited a while, but nothing changed on the phone. I tried making some changes on the phone, waited a while, but nothing changed on desktop. I tried closing and reopening the browsers, waited a while, still no change. I don’t see a manual sync button, so what do I actually need to do to make the changes sync to the other device?
The main thing I care about right now is to sync my open tabs, and keeping tabs preferably in the same groups, or if that’s not possible, then at least keep them in the same order.
