Closing focused tab after launch, closes browser regardless of tab count


Think it may be that Brave hasn’t loaded or cached the other tabs into memory yet and cannot recognize there are other tabs, defaulting to closing the entire browser. In another sense, requesting the ability to close out the last tab without Brave closing.

Operating System and version - W10 x64
Brave Version - 0.16.9


  • Set Brave to open last windows/tabs on launch
  • Open multiple sites in multiple tabs
  • Close Brave
  • Reopen Brave, close focused tab
  • Brave closes despite other tabs “active”


I have also reported this issue. Happens on Windows and Linux
