Yesterday, Google released the new version 69.0 of their browser, with a revamped UI. After the initial shock of the new look passed, I’ve noticed in the last 24hrs that under two profiles, on multiple sites, I can’t get bookmarklets to drag to the browser bookmark bar. Above is a screenshot of me trying to drag the Instapaper one up to the bar, to no avail.
Is this an oversight or a design decision or a bug? I can’t find any mention of bookmarklets in the most recent release notes.
UPDATE: a friend with a mac can add bookmarklets. I apparently still can’t even after a restart. So probably a bug on my end, but still endlessly frustrating!
I’m seeing this as well. Really hoping it is a temporary bug.
This looks to be a known issue with an unclear timeframe for fix: https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=878392&q=Bookmark&colspec=ID%20Pri%20M%20Stars%20ReleaseBlock%20Component%20Status%20Owner%20Summary%20OS%20Modified
