According to the current known issues I believe the issue affecting bookmarks is supposed to be fixed but for me every time I delete a bookmark, next time I open the browser it is back again.
I spent a while sorting everything out and it all reverted to how it was before, or where I have moved something from one folder to another it is now in both locations so my bookmarks are in more of a mess than when I started and I can't seem to do anything to sort them out as once I add a bookmark I seem to be stuck with it.
Is there a way to get this working as it is no longer on the known issues list even though it doesn't seem to be fixed:
It never used to work properly with legacy Edge either but with that one it used to mostly lose them all.

@HotCakeX Thanks, glad it is not just me.
I did find you could drag your bookmark folders and links from the Edge bookmarks bar across to Chrome so luckily I did that last time I sorted them out as a way to back them up how I wanted them.
Hopefully they will get the syncing working right soon although their other syncing tools like OneDrive have never worked well for me as always ends up with conflicting versions of the same files and I have to manually select which one to keep or deleted files that come back again - very annoying!

@HotCakeX regarding OneDrive, for me it works for all non-Microsoft documents but when it comes to working on Word/Excel/PowerPoint etc. it seems to be the way it handles these files as if I access from my PC it seems to open the cloud version instead and then try to merge them constantly but then gets confused and ends up conflicting with itself.
I've tried it on different PCs and with Microsoft accounts and Office 365 accounts but maybe I'm just unlucky!
Anyway Happy New Year and lets hope Microsoft fixes the bookmark syncing but until then might switch back to Chrome as don't like having messed up bookmarks!

Wow, neat, it's 10-22-2020 and Microsoft still hasn't fixed this insanely simple sync issue? On top of the failure to sync search engines, what a dumpster fire. I like everything else about Edge but this is sad.
Switched to Edge from Chrome a couple of months ago and just noticed this problem, deleted a bunch of bookmarks on one PC and then noticed they were all still on another PC a few days later.

What are the exact conditions that this problem happens to you?
it was a thing for me few months ago but it's not happening again anymore. even when using Edge stable and Dev, both signed into my personal Microsoft account at the same time on the same PC.

I was spending an insane amount of time seeing a bazillion old bookmarks pop up repeatedly in Win 10 EDGE. I deleted bookmarks from all folders under users, removed “SYNC” from all browsers, tried every forum under the sun to find the location of EDGE's Favorites folders, reinstalled Win 10, reinstalled Office 365 TWICE and nothing worked. Amazingly, when I just happened to pick up my old iPad, I saw the same bookmarks coming up! I discovered when I deleted them, Edge also allowed me to permanently delete the bookmarks! No idea it was syncing back & forth to and ancient iPad that I almost never use.

Here the same thing …
Edge was installed on my PC and iPhone, when i deleted my favorites on my pc, they return in a few seconds.
The moment i logged of from my iPhone everything was running as it should.
Just wait some time and when the synchronization has done you can login on your iPhone to Edge.
Log off again on your iPhone when you need to adjust some favorites
