Top Sites has a potential bug


Description of the issue:

After the last update of Brave Web Browser, my pinned top sites vanished into thin air. So after resetting to what I wanted a pinned top site will randomly vanish when opening a new tab.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Pin all available top site slots
  2. Navigate to and site
  3. Open a new tab by clicking the new tab button next to the currently open tab

Expected result:

This even seems to only occur when all top site slots are filled and pinned.

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Version 1.13.82 Chromium: 85.0.4183.83 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:

OS: Linux Mint Cinnamon 19.3
CPU: AMD Rysen 5 4 cores with 8 threads
RAM: 16GB

Update, this problem is continuing and getting worse. Pinned topsites keep vanishing after clicking on them. This is getting annoying and is unacceptable.

Did anyone ever respond to you, ikeman? I’m having the same problem.

Version 1.13.86 Chromium: 85.0.4183.102 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Yes, I did get a reply from one of the Dev’s on Github. There’s three of them working on the issue and I was sent a link to track it but must have deleted it because I can’t find it. However, I know they are working on it. That’s good enough for me right now, as an aspiring developer my self I know that these things do take time to work out. They are aware of the problem though.

Thank you! I look forward to it being resolve.
