Brave default browser broken since macOS Ventura 13.1 update*!*!*!

Description of the issue: Ever since I downloaded the Ventura 13.1 update the Brave browser won’t work as my default browser. The settings on my computer and Brave both say that it is the default browser, but safari is the only browser that will open. When I right click on a desktop link and hover over “open with” it tells me that safari is the default browser, but even the desktop and dock settings page it says Brave is the default.


Apple seems to think this is something on braves side of things.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Download macOS Ventura 13.1
  2. Try to open a desktop link when brave is set as the default browser

Expected result: Link opens with Safari.

Brave Version( check About Brave): V 1.47.171

Additional Information: Brave settings also tell me that Brave is the default browser.

Yeah, this seems to be an ongoing issue with Mac. You will need to contact them, as I don’t know there there’s anything Brave can do. One good starting place to see where others are sharing this problem would be links below:
