I don't know if this is a bug, but I can't seem to drag bookmarks that live within a folder in Chromes bookmark bar into a nested folder within that same folder.

Is this an error on my part or chromes inner workings?

I use xmarks for syncing bookmarks across browsers and tried deactivating it, but no help.

Confirm behavior. Witnessed to happening on both Linux and Windows. Almost certainly not an error on your part. Seems to be deficiency in Chrome's design. – Zoredache Sep 13 '13 at 20:46
My paranoid conspiracy theory opinion, Google doesn't care about bookmarks. They want you to search for everything, so that you are forced to see their ads. – Zoredache Sep 13 '13 at 20:48
I'm not seeing this issue on my PC. I have no problem dragging a bookmark from a folder to a subfolder. For reference, my chrome version is 29.0.1547.66. – Joel Taylor Sep 13 '13 at 20:48

This is a fairly long standing issue but it looks like it has been resolved. I can confirm that as of 29.0.1547.66 on Windows that it has been fixed.
