Phone [Q] "Adding Bookmarks to Homescreen"-Functionality broken in Kitkat / Cyanogenmod 11?

Since upgrading to Kitkat / Cyanogenmod 11 my only issue is that I can't seem to add Bookmarks to the Homescreen(s) anymore, not matter which Browser I use for that function (I have tried Chrome Beta, Firefox, Chrome and Dolphin). After choosing the "Add to Homescreen..."-Option in Chrome Beta for example, the Browser minimizes, revealing the Homescreen, but the selected Page will not appear as an icon.
Does anybody know of a workaround / solution?
(Otherwise Kitkat has been great to me, no problems so far and great performance... (ART!))

Default add widget & then select the bookmark

Had the same issue & spent like 20 mins trying to figure it out. Go to widgets --> gold star bookmark icon & then you get to select the bookmark to match it with.

I have the same issue with my galaxy s3. Where can I find that gold star bookmark icon?
Oké I found it. It's a just a workaround. I placed tribuchet back on my phone. That works better.
