Brave reports "This site can’t be reached" before even trying to connect to any website. Mac OS

Description of the issue:
Newly installed Brave. First time I start it, it says “This site can’t be reached” for every site I try (community[dot]brave, spiegel[dot]de google…). There is absolutely no lag between pressing return and getting the indication - it is not even trying to search for anything. This is happening locally, before the browser gets onto the internet.

  3. Launch Brave
  4. try to reach any site you like

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
