Bookmarks Links On Home Page Disappear After Android 6.0.1

We have around 20 bookmarks that we saved within the ABP Browser and added these to our home page on the Samsung Galaxy Tablet S2 9.7 - for easy access.

It worked well till last week when Samsung pushed the upgrade to the Android OS 6.0.1.

Now each time we add these bookmarks to the home page, when the tablet is rebooted, the bookmarks disappear.

FYI, all bookmarks are still visible within the ABP Browser.....unfortunately, since these are not organized or have the ability to be organized (if it is possible, we are unaware of how to organize these by subject or alphabetically), it is a pain to search for the site by scrolling.

Does anyone else have similar issues? If yes, is ther a way for these to stick?

Thanks for assistance.

Mapx: the link you have provided does not answer the question that was posted!

When a bookmark is added to the homepage, it disappears when the tablet is rebooted. This is not a problem on the Samsung Galaxy 6 Edge phone.

Both, the phone and the tablet have Android 6.

Hope this clarifies

Hey momandbabyshop,

Could you add a bookmark from another browser and see if it gives the same behaviour?
Hope to be able to help.

Cheers,

As requested, we added to the homepage, a bookmark of the same website using Google Chrome and Adblock Browser separately.

When the tablet was rebooted, the bookmark using the Adblock Browser disappeared while the bookmark using Google Chrome stuck!

As mentioned in the original post, this is not a problem on the Samsung Galaxy 6 Edge phone. Both, the Samsung tablet (model SM-T810) and Samsung phone (model SM-G925T) have the same Android version 6.01 .

Many thanks for your assistance.

Quick update.

This issue appears to have be resolved after the latest system update from Samsung.

Thanks.
