I do not understand what you mean by “restore my previously closed tabs”. Are you experiencing browser error(s)? Can you please give a step-by-step and/or explain what you mean by “restore”. Also, please post the setting you have enabled for On startup at brave://settings/getStarted.
Usually, what happens when opening/closing Brave Browser is determined by your On startup setting at brave://settings/getStarted. You should not have to “restore” sessions unless you are getting an error or are having some other problem. Please clarify events and settings in an update. Thanks!
Thank you for the suggestion, but I would like to inform you that there is no extension installed, and I have tried even reinstalling the browser, and I have tested it out on Windows 10 (on my laptop) and noticed that this issue is only happening with Windows 11 and that too if I restart the machine, or I turn on the machine after some time of shutdown, a regular restart of the browser windows does not cause this issue.
Looks like it is a known issue awaiting more information. It has been assigned a P5, which is a very low priority. Since the issue also has a Chromium/awaiting upstream tag, that indicates it is probably a Chromium issue and awaiting a fix in a future Chromium release.
You may want to try installing the Beta version and see if the behavior still occurs. Please post an update if you do install Beta.
I have added your topic as a +1 to the issue report. Also tagging Brave support for visibility. Support may have additional information about this issue.
@MridunGupta Is the behavior occurring in the Beta version? Beta is on a different Chromium release: Chromium: 109.0.5414.46. I am wondering if the issue is fixed in that Chromium version. If it is, Brave 1.47.x is scheduled for release on January 10, so shouldn’t have to wait long for a fix in the Release version of Brave.
