Not opening to my start page - always starts on Brave home page

Description of the issue:
Browser opens to its own start page, even though I’ve changed the settings to open on a particular page. I’ve tried resetting the start page a couple of times. It seems to sometimes work once (close the browser, reopens to my start page). However, the next time I close and reopen the browser it’s back to the basic/regular start page that I don’t want to see.

I’ve saved the page as a bookmark, so I can get to it. But isn’t the point of giving us the option to set our own start page that we can then have the browser open to the page we choose?

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
Settings
Get Started
Open a specific page or set of pages – there is a URL here

I have literally changed nothing but that setting. I’ve only been using Brave for a week and I use all the standard settings.

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
Opens up to not the page I requested – which is a real URL and does work

Expected result:
To see the home page I requested the browser open

Reproduces how often:
Every time I open Brave, a few times a day (and it’s not feasible to open it once and leave it open to the page all day.)

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):
OS Catalina 10.15.4
Brave (listed as up to date): Version 1.9.72 Chromium: 81.0.4044.138 (Official Build) (64-bit)
