The bugs of this buggy browser are getting more and more ridiculous.
Today the browser only opened 2 of the 11 windows i had open in previous session. I had 11 windows containing tabs varying from 50 to 97, so not a huge number of tabs all together at all! i had 2000 tabs open in chrome or firefox easily without problems.
I reopened Brave after restarting the laptop, and with the 2 out of my 11 previous windows opened on startup, sound is playing from a youtube video that was not from any tabs within these 2 windows. I manually went to the history pop up menu and re-opened the other 9 windows from a messy pile of recently closed tabs and windows, many of which double, and even though i found the window containing the youtube tab that was STOPPED and NOT PLAYING.
And YET the sound keeps playing on.
Eventually the sound drove me nuts and i shut down Brave again. Then reopened and the problem stayed EXACTLY the SAME. Then i restarted laptop and now i open BRAVE and i only have 2 windows left, the other 9 are gone, permanently, nowhere to be found in the recently closed pop up bar. THANKS A LOT BRAVE!
