My bookmarks disappeared after upgrading my iPhone (4s) to iOS 7. No big deal, I had put a backup on the server before I upgraded it. Well, when I went to restore them, there weren't any in the list to choose from. I checked from my iPad, which I hadn't upgraded yet, and there they were. I went ahead and just said "ok" to restore what looked like nothing from my bookmark backup, and it brought in an older backup. That's okay, I can live with that for a while. But what's annoying is that about every time I launch the app on the phone now, the bookmarks are gone and I have to go through the process again.

So after ignoring my iPad's notice to upgrade to iOS 7, I finally did it today. And the same thing happened with the bookmarks in it - they disappeared (or so I thought). So I went to restore the backup set on it to see if it acted any differently, and it did the same thing that the iPhone was doing - it didn't show any of my backup sets on the server, just a blank area.

But this time I didn't want to do the same thing as before and restore an unknown set because I wanted to keep the newer bookmarks that were on my iPad without wrecking it. So I went into the options panel and I changed the way that the bookmarks are sorted. I changed the folders from alphabetic to sort by date, and the bookmarks themselves to being sorted by date rather than by book. When I went back and looked at the bookmarks, they were all there again as a I left them, except they were sorted the other way now. So then I went back to the options panel and changed them both back to alphabetic sorting. Then I went back into the bookmarks and they were like they were supposed to be.

After killing the app and restarting it they're still there so, it looks like maybe the iPads okay. But I would sure like to restore my iPhone's bookmarks to the newer set. So will you guys please fix that bug that does not allow me to see the dates on my backup sets, so I can pick the correct one to restore? Thanks.
