After I reacted to your prompt to update my brave browser on my Mac it no longer works as it did. When I set up an account here, I needed to activate my new account. I click on the activate link your email in my inbox, but it opened a blank window with a black folder symbol with sad face. I was able to do it from my mobile but not my MacBook Pro. Many of my bookmarks now won’t open either a sad face folder blank page. How can this be resolved please?

Are you able to view any sites from within Brave after updating? Do you have any extensions installed in the browser at this time?

Sadly no, nothing is retrieved when I use the brave browser

I don’t have any extensions as far as I am aware.

Can you please try launching Brave from the Terminal with a new test profile and see if the browser still crashes? You can do this using the following command in the terminal:

open -a "Brave" -n --args --profile-directory="testprofile"

Hi, I how do I get to the terminal please?
