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:

https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/discussions/bookmarks-reappear-after-deletion/m-p/1039890

 

It never used to work properly with legacy Edge either but with that one it used to mostly lose them all.

Hi, you're right the problem is still there.

favorites sync is still the same as it was all the time, it has no duplicate prevention system, no method of preventing deleted favorites from showing up when multiple devices sync with the same Microsoft account.

sync speed is so slow and when multiple machines are syncing at the same time, the sync engine gets confused and doesn't know which change to register and which change to propagate among other devices..

Favorite sync also still doesn't support favorites that are set to icon-only.

@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!

Thanks that's a useful tip, that bookmarks can be dragged between browsers.

About OneDrive though I heavily rely on it, I have lots of programs that are installed on OneDrive and they generate many smaller files constantly, never had a problem with it, I keep using OneDrive with peace of mind.

@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!

Happy new year!
Yes i made the switch around 2 months ago :)
