Brave doesn't launch on MacOS

After a few hours working with Brave in normal, Private and Tor mode i closed Brave. A few minutes later i want to start it again and Brave won’t start. Starting Brave from the command line gives me this:

Latest Brave

Issue can be resolved by deleting everything (probably not needed to delete really EVERYTHING) under ~/Library/Application Support/Brave Software and restart the browser. Of course you have to install your extensions again and set Brave up the way you want to.
This time it happened after i opened a Private browser, then a Tor window and closed them again without actually opening any website.

Try to delete tor profile from brave directory

rm -rf ~/Library/Application\ Support/BraveSoftware/Brave-Browser/Tor\ Profile

not needed to delete everything

Thanks! Why does the profile corrupt?

I don’t know, I think the related issue for developers here:

Yes, it’s that issue.
