Brave segfaults when opening a 2nd browser instance

Description of the issue:
Anytime a new instance of Brave is launched - from the terminal, from an email link, or any other program that supports web links - the new window/tab opens, but the syslog reports a segfault.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Start Brave as normal
  2. Click a link from an email
  3. Brave opens 2nd window, but system reports a coredump

Expected result:
No coredump should be reported

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Version 0.68.132 Chromium: 76.0.3809.132 (Official Build) (64-bit)
UPDATE: still happening on version 0.68.140

Additional Information:
I can reproduce this on Linux Mint 19.2, Fedora 30, Ubuntu 18.04/19.04.
UPDATE: this is the command that’s causing the crash: exo-open --launch WebBrowser
UPDATE: it’s also crashing when running simply: brave-browser
