Open tabs close when switching between apps

Prior to August 10th, this used to work well on my Samsung Note Pro 12.2, SM-P900. I do alot of research on my tablet and use a couple apps to work on a research paper. All the Brave tabs used to remain open when swtiching between apps, however now the tabs do not remain open when I go to another app. Creating bookmarks as a work-around will help for the moment, but it is time consuming to always open bookmarks to choose the sites that were open in the first place. Nor will I buy a new tablet just so the tabs remain open.

Hopefully this issue can be fixed. If it not, I may need to use a different browser. Thank you.
