I created a copy of my user data directory, and used a command line switch to point to it, but instead of a Brave session with separate bookmarks, profiles, etc., a new window was opened in the existing browser session.
How can this issue be reproduced?
- cd ~/.config/BraveSoftware/Brave-Browser
- cp -r Default test123
- brave --user-data-dir-name=/home//.config/BraveSoftware/Brave-Browser/test123
Expected result: A new Brave session where I can modify bookmarks, etc. without altering the original data directory. This is how it works in Chromium.
Actual result: Brave prints “Opening in existing browser session.” and opens a new window, just like pressing ctrl-n.
