Brave will not open in requested page, then freezes

performance

#1

See the following for what my page freeze looks like:


Once I type in my desired location: the page freezes completely. Additionally, I cannot access any address listed below the one I’ve typed in.
Brave used to work seamlessly, but now I can’t get further than the address page.

Any suggestions?
