Hovering a tab over Bookmarks button no longer opens the dropdown?

Posted

My browser updated to v69.0 this morning, and now I find myself unable to use functionality that I utilize quite often. If I have a tab open I want to save to my Bookmarks, so I drag it over and hover it above the Bookmarks button in my toolbar, the Bookmarks dropdown opens up, and I can navigate my myriad of folders and sub-folders to place the tab in the folder I want to save it in. Now, however, hovering the tab over the Bookmarks button is no longer causing the dropdown to open.

This becomes especially egregious if I want to save multiple tabs to the same folder simultaneously. I can drop them into the Bookmarks as a group, but then I must manually move each one to the correct subfolder and place it where I want them. It quickly becomes a tedious process.
