Brave starts blocking extensions and the browser stops working.

For the past few days, Brave has been exhibiting an unusual behavior where it starts blocking extensions, and suddenly the browser stops functioning altogether. Accessing new websites becomes impossible, and performing searches in the URL field is also prohibited. Initially, Brave remains stable for an extended period, but later it begins blocking extensions and experiencing failures. I have even encountered other issues where sometimes Brave doesn’t allow me to open it, forcing me to restart the computer, at which point it becomes accessible again.
