I’ve also tried deleting browser history and settings as well as re-installing but to no avail …

I updated to Version 0.65.118 Chromium: 75.0.3770.80 (Offizieller Build) (64-Bit) but the issue is still the same …

@shan_noodles,
Can you try disabling Hardware Acceleration and see if that resolves the issue? Do you have any extensions installed?

Are other internal pages displaying correctly? Like brave://sync for example?

Aah, disabling Hardware Acceleration makes it work (the browser also got even faster all in all)!

I had no extensions installed and all other sites like brave://sync (& all other settings pages) worked without problems.

Thanks!
