Ah thanks, that explains that.
In the thread I linked in Reply#5 there's a post by dtbmjax which details how to revert to the old version. It also reverts the main browser Bookmark Star to it's previous behavior. It took me 2 tries to get the change to take - The 1st time I had the "chrome://flags" tab opened in a 2nd tab alongside the webpage to copy and paste, the 2nd time I copied the instructions to a text file and used it to copy and paste with only the "chrome://flags" tab open. I'm not familiar enough with Chrome to know if that really matters, but that's how it worked. Just in case anyone else finds the new version to be as clumsy as I do.
Thank you for the tip!
For the uninitiated Chrome users:
1. Type "chrome://flags" in the address bar (without the quotes)
2. Press CRTL+F to open the "Find in Page" dialog box and enter "bookmark" in the search box (again without the quotation marks).
3. Press the down arrow in the search box until you get to the section titled:
Enable Enhanced Bookmarks Mac, Windows, Linux, Chrome OS, Android
Provides an off switch for enhanced bookmarks experiment #enhanced-bookmarks-experiment
4. In the drop-down, select "Disabled"
5. At the bottom of your screen, click the "Relaunch Now" button. Your old Bookmark Manager should be back.
