Browser suddenly becomes like a freshly installed one

Description of the issue:
I was using a tor window and then i closed it. The next time I opened my brave browser ( after 30 seconds) it was like a newly installed one. I have lost all my bookmarks and brave rewards ( estimated as well as claimed).

Any suggestion on how to restore the browser to the previous state ?

Brave Version( check About Brave): Version 1.15.72 Chromium: 86.0.4240.75 (Official Build) (64-bit)

From another thread like yours…

there are some major differences

  1. I didn’t updated anything. Just closed the tor window.
  2. It is not just something missing. The next time I opened the browser It behaved like it is a newly installed one. ( it asked to enable the brave reward and import bookmarks)

Ok, so I had opened a new profile without my knowledge. I just change to my previous profile and problem was solved. Thanks @megaspaz

I still recommend 3rd party bookmark manager and password manager though… :nerd_face:

Came here to suggest that you may have done exactly that – great detective work :slight_smile:
