Restore session tabs not restored

Description of the issue:
The browser froze so it was closed in task manager and when I restarted the browser it asked if I wanted to restore previous session and I did but it just opened a new tab. I have had to restore the session before and it worked but I have no idea why it didn’t this time.
How can this issue be reproduced? many tabs.

Expected result:
browser freezes
Brave Version( check About Brave):
Version 1.23.73 Chromium: 90.0.4430.85 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:
Could the tabs opened when the browser is closed be saved in it’s own folder in the history so that the tabs can be manually opened again if they fail to open when the session is restored?

Thank you for reaching out to us.
Even when this happens, you should still see the open tabs from your previous session in Menu --> History, as shown below:

Clicking on the 4 Tabs (in my example) opens a window with all four tabs from that session. Do you see these in your History?

I was in previous times but this time it was cleared.

So you don’t see anything in your history at all? That would be very strange.

At any rate I’m not sure there’s anything we can do about this particular crash. Given that it was a browser crash it’s not exactly reproducible behavior which makes it hard to diagnose.
