Can't add bookmarks, browser just closes itself

android
#1

Description of the issue:
I cannot add bookmarks in Brave on my phone. As far as I can tell the only way to bookmark a site is to tap the 2nd button from the left on the bottom bar. When I do this, the browser immediately quits and I am back to my home screen.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary):

  1. Opened Brave on Android
  2. Go to any site
  3. Tap “bookmark” button (2nd from left on bottom bar)

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
Brave app disappears (possibly minimizes, but more likely crashes and closes out) and I am looking at my home screen.

Expected result:
Adding current site to bookmarks list.

Reproduces how often:
Every time.

Brave Version(See the About Brave page in Settings):
Brave 1.0.88 Chromium 72.0.3626.121

Mobile Device details
HuaweiY635-L03

Android/iOS Version
Android 4.4.4; Y635-L03 Build/
