    Microsoft Edge favorites


    Before the Chromium update, I could click on a favorite, and when I closed it and opened the favorites list again, the cursor would be at the last favorite I opened. Now, when I close a favorite, it goes back to the top of the favorites list. Then I have to scroll down, often to the bottom of the list. Can this be corrected to something similar to the previous method?
