Sometimes closing a second Brave window causes all windows/tabs to close


#1

Description of the issue: I will sometimes use private tabs in a completely separate window (also happens with non-private tabs). Once I am done with the private tabs (ie, birthday/Christmas/surprise shopping) I will close out the tabs. When that happens there is a small percentage chance (about 30-40%) that all my tabs in every window will close and I’ll have to re-open the brave browser. This issue also occurs when I have multiple tabs open and I try and close one tab but they all end up closing.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary):

  1. Open Brave Browser
  2. Create a new private tab (without Tor) - OR - leave it as a regular tab
  3. Click and drag that tab off the bar to create a new window - OR - Leave the tab on the same page
  4. Create more tabs - OR - Leave it as only one tab
  5. Then close the tabs individually by clicking the ‘X’ on the tab.

    Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
    All tabs will close and I need to reopen the Brave Browser. I don’t have any Gifs or screen shots at the moment but if I catch it in a recording then I’ll submit it as an edit on this post

Expected result:
That only the tab or window that I am trying to close will be the only one that closes

Reproduces how often:
1/15 maybe? It certainly doesn’t happen all the time but when it does happen you’ll definitely know.

Thanks for reporting @UtopianFlat,

Can you confirm if you issue similar/same like one that described in the link below? Maybe you have tab that not finished loading?

Thank you,

The issue seems to be similar. The tab is loaded completely and there is no signs of glitching or anything else. When I watch YouTube, I right click the video and open it in a new tab and so I’ll have 5+ tabs open and that doesn’t seem to affect things as much as private tabs (even only having 1 private tab open)
