I tried removing some sites via the x icon in popup which displays the full list of auto contribute sites, and I noticed that sometimes one of my sites gets displayed with a crazy huge percentage.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Visit a bunch of non-YouTube sites.
  2. Watch a playlist on YouTube with a bunch of videos (this was primarily to increase the number of sites in my auto contribute table quickly, I currently have almost 100).
  3. Once you get to almost 100 sites, open brave://rewards (keep playlist running in background)
  4. Open the popup showing all auto-contribute sites
  5. Start deleting some of the sites with 0%

Actual result:

See that a site shows up at the bottom with a crazy huge percentage value which changes (probably because the playlist is still running in the background)

Expected result:

No site should have that large of a % value

Reproduces how often:

Spent some time today trying to reproduce on master, and was unable. Will give it another shot but if STR can change in any way to help better find the expected result that'd be great

@ryanml the only real direction I have is that it seems to be related to upgraded profiles. i.e., you started with 0.55.18 (first release channel build) and enabled rewards, started adding sites to your a-c table, etc. Then you upgraded each time one was available (0.55.20 then 0.55.22, etc). I know I personally encountered this when trying to reproduce #1693.

The specific number we're seeing here, 4294967295 (0xffffffff), is the maximum you can hold in an unsigned integer. Could be caused by setting a value to -1 somewhere where negative values are unsupported.

Does excluding a website change a value somewhere from 1 to 0? If this could be executed twice then it would result in a -1. QA can try double-excluding a site (clicking fast? busy hard drive?) to reproduce the issue.

I'm seeing a similar thing in my Windows 10 installation. When I start excluding sites from auto-contribute things start to get weird: percentages add up to many 100's of percent. So I go back to "reset" my auto contribute and then it shows some normal looking values, and a handful and MAXINT at the bottom:

Before reset:

After reset:
