Description of the issue:
Lately Brave does not shut down completely, despite appearing to do so. There are always at least two processes which need to be killed in the task manager. As a result, until all processes are killed in the task manager, a new session of Brave cannot be launched.
As an added inconvenience, killing the processes with RAM using RAM via the task manager wipes the session memory (i.e. you can not restore previous session or even see which tabs were open). See also: Restore session broken by apparent memory leak
How can this issue be reproduced?
- Launch Brave
- Close Brave
- Launch Brave again before all processes have shut down (the more memory is cached, the slower the processes shut down …if they ever do at all, that is)
Being able to close and relaunch Brave the way I used to, the same way I can any other application
