Why are links I drag to the Chrome Bookmark Bar not added where I drop them but at the end of the list?

How come when I drag http addresses to my Chrome Bookmark Bar, they are not inserted between the 2 tabs I drop them? For some reason, they’re being pushed to the dropdown area, where I can’t see them, rather than inserted between the 2 visible bookmark tabs between which I am dropping the new URL.

Is there possibly a setting I’ve set by accident? It didn’t always work this way (expecting to insert between the 2 tabs where I’m dragging to).

    If you drop the URL over an existing bookmark, Chrome would place the new one at the end of the list. Therefore, be careful when you drag the URL to position it between two existing one (you will see a vertical "insertion point" when you have done so).

    remove the bookmark bar and show it again and see if it helps

    open chrome "Bookmark manager"
    and see if you have set it "Reorder by title underneath the "Organize Menu"

    Can't reorder bookmarks in bookmarks bar; sync related?

    perhaps you need to reinstall chrome?

    You should just be able to put it right in the middle of where you want then just drop it
