Vertical tab glitch when switching back to normal tabs

Description of the issue:
When switching back from vertical tabs, the horizontal tabs in the window can get squashed into an unsuable state after a specific set of steps. (using minimized tabs)

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Open Brave and open at least 2 tabs.
  2. Open second instance of Brave with any number of tabs open.
  3. On the instance with 2+ tabs open, right click on the tab and select “Use vertical tabs”
  4. Activate “minimize tabs”
  5. Right click on the tab and unselect “Use vertical tabs”
  6. Click on the other instance of Brave. (the tabs on the instance with 2+ tabs will now shrink to ~1/3 width.)
  7. Click on the instance with 2+ tabs (or the tab bar on the top of the browser) and the tabs shrink to show <1 tab.
  8. The auxilliary window will have no visible bugs.

Expected result:
No unexpected behaviour with tab sizes

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Version 1.57.64 Chromium: 116.05845.188 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:
This issue can be fixed by switching back to vertical tabs and then selecting “expand tabs” before switching to horizontal tabs again.
Resizing the window briefly changes tab size to ~1/3 and it is usable until you click on another instance of Brave and back to the instance with 2+ tabs.
