Description of the issue: Brave browser is frozen, after navigating to a pdf page.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. I am unsure it can be reproduced, but here is what happened: I clicked on a link in a blog post, following it to a pdf page I intended to download.
  2. I used the … ( is this called a hamburger? ) in the upper RH corner of the Brave window.
  3. I attempted to select something, ultimately, anything, from the menu.

Expected result: The ability to bookmark, download, or share.

Brave Version( check About Brave):. I can’t provide this because Brave is frozen, but I downloaded the app a year ago and automatically update my OS.

Mobile Device details iPad Pro 12.9 3rd gen, running iPadOS 13.7

Additional Information:. As of this posting, Brave remains frozen. Haven’t tried a reboot. Wanted to post this, first.

Hi @Terri,
Can you try closing and reopening Brave and/or restarting your device.

I could not close Brave, but I did restart the device. I mainly wanted to contribute to any database of issues and solutions. Thanks so much!
