You have to manage those from whatever browser your using chrome or stock. I had the same issue with mine so I quit using the widget. I just take the extra step and go in thru thru my chrome browser.

Along these lines... can anyone recommend a good bookmark widget? I use Boat Browser and the stock bookmark widget no longer works after the update. Before the update, I could set Boat Browser as my default browser and the stock widget would open in Boat...now it only opens in the stock browser which is absolutely terrible...no text wrapping.
I simply cannot find an after market bookmark widget that works.
Also, I don't like Chrome, so I'm looking for suggestions that will work with Boat Browser.

I too use boat browers and see no difference in anythng after the udate. It stayed as my default and all my bookmarks are there and I can add them just as I used to, by long holding the tab at the top. A window opens and asks if you want to save it as a bookmark.. there are other options on the pop up too. Then to access them you press the menu buttom on the bottom left of your phone.. a menu pops up. hit the star and all the bookmarks shlould be there.. Not sure but there was a boat browers update a few days ago. Try installing that and see if it helps. I did that before the update. Hope this helps!

That's what I'm doing now. Bookmarks work fine on Boat Browser. I'm looking for a bookmark WIDGET to place on one of my homescreens.
