Hello, what is the exactly command that need to run in MacOS, in the page you linked dind’t see clearly, thanks!

Well, seems working right, now! I created some profiles and deleted and all seems working fine now, I don’t know what can cause the problema, but if anything goes wrong will tell you :slight_smile:

the command is to start brave fro command line using the this argument --user-data-dir=somthing
and replace something with the directory to the folder you create
