Description of the issue:
Re-opening/rebooting: Brave does not remember previous windows sizes and locations (multiple Brave windows opened in previous session - most often 3 Brave windows):
whenever i turn off my pc at night, i expect that the next morning, when i turn on the pc again, that the several Brave browsers remember where i had positioned them to reopen at the same locations with the last pages still on them. well, the brave browser does indeed remember my tabs, but more often than not, the brave browser will flash and try to open for maybe 1/3rd of a second, that’s estimating it at 0.3 seconds. Then, all signs of Brave disappear .
when i re-click the brave icon in my quick launch bar to reopen the brave browser, of course, all the tabs are now lost and i have to open up several brave browsers and carefully re-position them again. this is a real hassle every single morning, essentially. i’d say 3 to 4 times out of 5, this malfunction happens.
UPDATE: after posting this topic (now closed by the moderator) previously, i was asked to DISABLE hard acceleration. Well, that reduced the frequency of the “disappearing Brave browsers at boot up” but it still happens say, every 3 boot ups or so. There is no telling when it will happen. As I only turn off my PC once per day (at the end of the night), and turn it on once a day (early morning), it is very annoying to have lost all the tabs of what one was working on the previous evening.
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
the only way to reproduce this is to reboot the pc many times and do a tally on how often it happens. but for me, thus far, it’s roughly 3-4 times out of every 5 reboots. UPDATE: with the fine advice from the moderator of this thread/forum, i was able to disable Hardware Acceleration and now it is less frequent but still very frequent. in fact, initially after disabling Hardware Acceleration, it didn’t happen for days, then now, it crept back and it is happening rather consistently, say, 2 or 3 out of every 5 or 6 bootups, approximately.
Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
can’t do a screenshot as the brave browsers would struggle to open for merely 0.3 seconds (approximately), then completely disappear.
i would naturally expect at each reboot, that all my brave windows would reopen at the same sizes and locations.
Reproduces how often:
3-4 times out of every 5 reboots.
