Thanks for reaching out to us.
Are you able to download the stable build of the browser, or do you get the same issues as you do with Beta?


thanks for replying so quickly.

I am fine with the stable build and have been using it for a while now. It is fantastic! It just seems to be the beta version. It’s not big deal as I am more than happy with the released version. Just thought you guys better know about my problem.
