Brave update reset everything, lost BAT, settings, extensions and bookmarks

To clarify, the second time was around 3 weeks back so it must’ve been a different version. But I removed it using sudo apt remove brave-browser, then re-downloaded the .deb package and installed it using sudo apt install -f package.deb and it somehow magically worked.

Tried the same thing this time but it didn’t work.

Edit -
My memory could be rusty but I remember downloading a package from brave.com to install it. I can’t find the same anymore though. Either way, I’m pretty sure it wasn’t a beta or nightly.
