Hello @289wk ,
Thanks for the response. I tried to open all the page you mentioned, but none of them are getting open
Hope I can get any other solution
Deleting the BraveBrowser app from Applications directory and downloading again worked. Gladly all the bookmarks and plugins are there. Thanks for the support anyway
