Version 1.59.124 Chromium: 118.0.5993.117
I have every “run in the background” option disabled.
Brave refuses to quit properly. This is what my Task Manager looks like when Brave should be completely closed:
Since I have the setting enabled to clear cookies and site history on exit, I noticed those don’t get cleared either.
Using a 3rd party extension I was able to determine that when this happens, I have several windows with nothing except 1 empty tab on them that don’t show up through regular means. Closing them from this 3rd party extension allows the browser to shut down properly.
I haven’t installed any new extensions. The problem started happening earlier this week.
To replicate this bug the browser needs to have been running for a while, but it doesn’t require anything special.
