Bitwarden keeps having to be repaired when restarting Brave

Bitwarden works normally with Brave Browser but after closing the browser and restarting, Bitwarden is missing. Opening extensions it shows that Bitwarden needs to be repaired; I click on repair and it re-installs Bitwarden. This happens every time I restart Brave. I also use Edge Browser with no problems, Bitwarden is always there ready for use… What the hell is going on with Brave? Is there a fix for this?
