Steps to reproduce:

Add new PC, Android, or IOS device for syncing to desktop pc. Sync option set to Merge.


Actual results:

Hundreds of carefully organized foldered and subfoldered business bookmarks were either scrambled or moved to unsorted. Some folders moved to unsorted had bookmarks intact, many were emptied, with bookmarks grouped together.
Adding another device repeats the problem.


Expected results:

Folders, subfoldes and other bookmarks should have kept their hierarchy intact during sync with other devices.
