Adding Brave to the favorites bar

Description of the issue:
I would like Brave to show as a favorite (some people might call that the dock). Normally I can add programs there by first opening up the list of applications (clicking the 9 dots in the corner of the screen), then right clicking on the application that I would like to add, choosing “add to favorites.” However, when I do this with Brave, the Brave icon adds itself to the favorites but when I click the icon, nothing actually opens. Note that when I select Brave from my list of applications, it does open.

Reproduces how often:
All of the time.

Operating System and Brave Version:
Ubuntu 18.04, Gnome desktop
Version 0.63.48 Chromium: 74.0.3729.108 (Official Build) (64-bit)
