Help: How to find the latest bookmarked post?

Hi guys, I noticed that there is no search function on the saved posts. It keeps showing me random, shuffled post and nkt the latest bookmarked as it did earlier.
I know a lot of people where wondering about this.
Does someone know an extension or some other workaround about this issue?
Like this no point bookmarking posts if you're never gonna find them. (700+ saved posts).

Click on your profile image (top ight on mobile) and click "reading list". Bookmarked posts are in the order you bookmarked them. There is a search field... But by the looks of it, it only filters on exact matches.

I tried, but there are posts I have bookmarked earlier, 2018 or so, not the latest ones. I have to scroll down and try to find them and I have a big list(700+). There's no option to show the latest bookmarked.

Strange. I just tried on desktop as well and search is working for me (the search field is in the left hand column; below the main/top search field) ; though it feels a little sluggish. You have to wait a moment after typing for the filter to be a applied and as I said before it won't match a partial string - e.g. it won't find results for 'angu' but will do for 'angular'.

Maybe check the browser console for any errors and file a bug report if need be...

Are your bookmark in a chronological order, starting from the last ones you bookmarked?
Because mine are random from 2 years ago and I have to really try to browse through them to find a particular post.
It would be great if I could see my latest bookmarked instead like this.
