Brave auto-installed the latest version, and in doing so, reverted all my settings to default and my bookmarks were completely gone. This is not acceptable; why and how did this happen?
As one who has caught this bug, I know how much it sucks, and am sorry you experienced it.
Are you on Windows, or a Mac? Can you please copy your info from
about:brave so we can confirm if this matches an existing issue, or is a new issue we need to investigate separately?
Again, sincere apologies for this. This has been a really difficult issue to reproduce consistently, but is a top priority that the team is currently investigating and testing fixes for (if it is the same issue that I suspect it is).
Update Channel dev
Again, sincere apologies for this happening to you. Really appreciate you reporting this and sharing the info we requested.
I am going to add this to the GH issue that the team is working on, and will link to it here for tracking progress.
I have added a link to your contribution here to the GitHub issue that our team is using as they continue to investigate.
I am going to close the thread here, since this is in the github queue and being actively worked on.
