Windows 10, Brave v.0.16.9
A notification appeared at the top of my browser that there was an update. I selected update and restart, as I usually do.
When I restarted, my session was gone, as was every bit of history. My bookmarks are still here as are my pinned tabs. Just no history before the update/restart. This is a significant setback for me.
Not really holding out for a fix, just letting you know.
