Just tested and can replicate. Clicking on Donate on top just opens a copy of the same page in a new tab. Scroll down and hit the Donate button near the PayPal icon and it completely exits Brave (closing all tabs). When opening Brave again, you’re asked if you’d like to Restore Pages? and says it didn’t shut down properly.
Hi @elidumitru thanks for bringing this to our attention!

Have you bee able to replicate this issue on either Brave Nightly or Beta?
It looks to be working fine on 1.42 or higher.
Ooh, I don’t know if something pushed through since but I did see an update that required me to restart the browser. I’m now on
Version 1.41.100 and, as you said, it seems to be working as intended. Whereas earlier I had the crashes such as you should have seen in the logs.
Can you do a favor and test it on your end? Earlier I experienced the same problem as you but now it seems resolved. I want to see if it’s the same with you.
Brave Nightly is our testing and development version of Brave. The releases are updated every night and may contain bugs that can result in data loss.
Brave Nightly = One that’s in production and might have errors. It can let you get extremely early access to new features and everything. You are more likely to experience issues on this, but it’s not that bad.
Brave Beta is what’s soon to be released. Things should be code complete but you’re still a bit of a testing. You’ll just be a version or two ahead of the normal build.
Brave Release is the normal version of the browser. At this stage things should be working flawlessly but there still will be issues that can come up, just not as frequently.
