Hey @calhancock !

Sorry to hear you are experiencing this issue. You are saying this happens the first time you visit a webpage, does the problem go away after the 2nd visit?

Hey calhancock,

Can you make a new profile to see if this problem persists?

How I create a new profile? I looked in Help and found nothing about it.

To create a new profile, click on the menu icon in the top right corner of Brave window → Create a new Profile

Tried a new profile. It made no difference. And, yes, GreenBananaPorridge, you are correct. It only happens the first time I visit a page during the current session of Brave. If I go somewhere else and return to that page it does not happen. If I exit Brave and restart it, then go to that page again, it occurs again.

Good news! Brave has issued an update. Microsoft has issued several Windows updates. Apparently, some combination of these has fixed the problem. Thanks for your responses. Problem solved. Case closed. :smiley:
