Thank you so much for your response. I noticed in the other thread that you are also using Fedora. Seems like Fedora is causing some issues and not Brave (or not exclusively). I am downloading the newest updates as I am typing and I will report back if this has resolved my issue.
The issue has been resolved. If you’re having the same issues and you are on Fedora 39 install the latest updates. Now that I think of it I could have restored from a previous kernel and the issues probably would have been fixed.
OLD Kernel Version: 6.6.8-200.fc39.x86_64 (64-bit)
NEW Kernel Version: 6.6.9-200.fc39.x86_64 (64-bit)
