  1. June 2023, and my bookmark star disappeared months ago, and no way to quickly do it, only the longer manual way. Switching browsers, nothing but issues with chrome for way too long, and through TOO many updates.

    1. Hello Jane, the Chrome browser has the sync feature that automatically synchronize the data between devices when connected with same Google account. By any chance you deleted the bookmarks from any one device? It’s possible that you’ve deleted it from one device and bookmarks from other devices are removed.
