I too am experiencing the same issue.


Sorry to hear, but at least now I know it’s not just my device. Doesn’t seem to be much going on here in the way of help unless you’re worried about the Brave Rewards.

Are you running the Beta 12? I’m hoping that maybe once the final release drops that will trigger something to fix itself.
