Pinned links disappearing

I am new to Brave ( Version 1.25.68 (Official Build) (x86_64)
I pinned 2 pages (duckduck, my gmail login, my password manager login and my calender). After logging out (Macos Catalina 10.15.7) the pinned pages disappeared. I think this always happens. I am not sure if this is the expected behaviour but I would prefer that they remain pinned as on Safari. Can I do this.?

Hi @mandywr14, Welcome to Community!
When you log out, do you shut down your machine?
Do you quit Brave?
Also, do you have any extensions installed?

yes I quit (force quit if necessary) all running programs then shut down. This seems to log me out automatically.

Can you confirm if you have any extensions installed?

no extensions as yet

correction .2 extensions , lastpass (password manager) and duckduckgo (search engine)

Hi @mandywr14,
Does disabling those extensions help resolve the issue?
