Restarting Brave does strange things with about:newtab shortcuts



When I start up Brave after closing it, however temporarily, the shortcuts on about:newtab reset to their install defaults. After several minutes of browsing, opening a new tab of about:newtab has the shortcuts reset according to my actual history, but even then, stickied shortcuts are out of the order I had set them in prior to closing.

Screenshots of the issue:
