Brave crashes on start-up when some old tabs were supposed to be restored

Description of the issue:
I started observing the issue that Brave does not want to start in case I left some tabs opened. I observed two situations already:

  1. Brave starts, shows “Restore” button to restore old tab. If I clicked on it, browser crashed and I had to start it again.
  2. Once clicked on icon on my destop, Brave crashed immediately (no window was shown). To work around that I had to go via right click menu and use “New window” which opened a new window. Then it also offered “Restore button” but if I used it it crashed again.

This is happening with the latest upgrade. This was not happening with a version I was using last week.
The number of tabs which were suppose to be restored was either 44 or 19.

How can this issue be reproduced?
See description above

  1. Start Brave using lunch icon

Expected result:
Brave starts and restores all my tabs
