Brave Beta Build Wouldn't Launch Even After Shut Down and Restart


Description of the issue:
How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. 2020-11-24 Brave Beta Build Wouldn’t Launch Even After Shut Down and Restart of my MacBook Pro running Catalina 10.15.7
  2. Reproduced by repeated failed attempts at trying to launch. Unfortunately I got so fed up I uninstalled the beta and then wiped the log files before discovering this happy place.
  3. As this is my first foray into reporting on a Brave beta I hope that what I have written is helpful, if not please let me know what I can do to try to reproduce the issue and report it back to you. Happy to offer screen shots and even video in future if you guys feel that might help?

Expected result:

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Version 1.17.73 Chromium: 87.0.4280.67 (Official Build) (x86_64)

Additional Information:
