Number of open Windows open after browser where closed


Hey. I got a problem. Everytime I close my browser with a few windows open,
I got the number of open windows back open after starting the browser again.

Any ideas how to fix it?



Hi @MaddogOfficial,

You can set Brave start with behavior in Preferences > General.

Let me now if that answer your question.


Sadly it doesn’t fix my problem. I try to illustrate it again.
I have a few tabs in a few windows open. So this is a normal situation for me.
But when I close Brave sometimes it opens a few (1-5) windows instead of the wanted one.
This is often when I close all open windows with one click.

Hope you can help me.


Also sometimes if I close the active window with the button on the top right all windows get closed


Can you share your Brave version and your OS?

Also cc-ing @LaurenWags for additional help.


Here is my browser version:

Brave 0.20.42
V8 6.4.388.41
rev 096c7cb
Muon 4.8.2
OS Release 10.0.16299
Update Channel Release
OS Architecture x64
OS Platform Microsoft Windows
Node.js 7.9.0
Brave Sync v1.4.2
libchromiumcontent 64.0.3282.140

I use Windows 10 x64 10.0.16299 Build 16299



Another problem is that I can’t search the history. It erase everything I write


Do you use any external software to clean the disk? Softwares like CCleaner or Antivirus based performance boosters like Kaspersky Disk Analyzer ? Such softwares tend to clear your browsing data by default.


No I do not have any software hoe clear my browsing data by default. In another browser it also do not clear. Just in Brave


What you’re telling is supposed to be a component of “incognito mode” where sessions history or web history is not saved. Clear all the inBrowser data once [History, cookies, cache, saved form fill data & passwords & rest] Uninstall Brave.
Delete the whole main brave folder where you’ve installed brave & its components.
Restart the PC
Do a fresh install of brave browser
Do not touch any settings & start surfing. Leave few pages open, close the browser. Make sure to read all prompts you get while closing. Restart the browser & see if the session is restored.
P.S do not install any kind of plug-in/extension after fresh install. Many privacy plug-ins tend to clear your history & session data after you close the tabs.
If the problem still exists, feel free to ping back on brave community :slight_smile:
