My tabs are reloading in reverse order after a crash

Fortunately, Brave doesn’t crash on me frequently. When it does, and I choose to reload my tabs when I get the “Brave did not shut down properly” message, the tabs load in reverse order, from left-to-right to right-to-left.

I have Brave version 0.68.131, Chromium 76.0.3809.100, running on Windows 10 Pro v1809, 64-bit.

Thanks for reaching out – that’s a pretty interesting issue :slight_smile:
Do you have any extensions installed in Brave when this happens by chance?

Oh, loads of extensions, including Quick Tab, Speed Dial 2, and Tab Position Options (the extensions dealing with tabs). I didn’t see any settings on these on how to deal with crashes. I don’t know how to recreate the issue, to figure out if any extensions are causing it. Is there a way to force Brave to crash and recover?

You should be able to go to brave://crash but it’ll only crash the tab in focus – not the entire browser. I would imagine that without the Tab Position Options extension installed, this wouldn’t have happened (re-loading tabs in reverse order). I personally have never seen this issue described before so I believe it’s an edge case.

If you think there’s some other shenanigans going on please let me know and I’d be happy to further troubleshoot with you.
