In the last few releases, I am currently on Version 94.0.975.0 (Official build) canary (64-bit), the persistence behavior of Favorites folder expansion has changed.
It used to be if I clicked on the triangle to expand a Favorites folder, the folder expansion would persist when I next opened the Favorites menus. But if I clicked on the text of the folder name, it would not persist as expanded the next time I opened the Favorites menu.
I found this behavior to be helpful since it allowed me to choose whether the expansion persisted or not. It also allowed me to avoid a growing first view of Favorites that I have to manually collapse to reduce in size.
It will be helpful to me to bring back the ability to choose the persistence behavior I would like each time I expand a folder.
Alternatively, a setting to be able to choose non-persistent expansion or persistent expansion as the standard would work for me, but would not be as flexible.
I have also submitted through Send Feedback.

The loss of functionality in the persistence behavior of Favorites folder expansion has now shown up in Dev, Version 94.0.975.1 (Official build) dev (64-bit). See also the post from @tistou above. Also reported through Send feedback.

Standardizing the behavior when clicking different spots on the favorites was intentional. It was generally confusing to users to have what they viewed as the same action (clicking a favorite) lead to different outcomes, so this was standardized. Totally understand that you'd like to be able to choose which behavior occurs, though! It sounds like you've already submitted feedback around this, but for anyone coming into this thread later that would like to see a setting for this or other ways to more granularly control the behavior -- make sure you submit feedback in the browser and let us know =)
