I started using Brave a month or so ago, really liked it. I use Windows 10. Turned on my PC yesterday, and it was gone, gone, gone. No desktop icon, nowhere to be seen on the program list, or anywhere else. Poof! I have an uninstall program (Wise), so I opened it, and Brave was on the list, meaning it was lurking somewhere. That’s the only place Brave showed up. I uninstalled it via Wise, and reinstalled it. I had lost everything, of course, and the new version would not let me import my Chrome bookmarks as it had allowed me to do the first time. Deal breaker. I threw up my hands and installed Firefox. I like Firefox too, so I’m sticking with it.
Never had this happen before.
