Brave Browser advising internet Offline

[Beginning Wednesday 11 October]
When using YouTube, opening a new tab gives me the message that I’m offline. That is incorrect.
The only workaround I’ve tried so far is to Refresh the page.
Oddly, Cmd-clicking a thumbnail opens a new tab without problems.
Anyone else?
