Browser Update Bug


#1

Brave Team,

I’m very interested in the success of this project. I normally don’t do tech support feedback but brave needs to succeed. I’m currently using mac System Version: OS X 10.11.6 (15G1510)
The browser constantly notifies me with a “your browser needs to be updated details, later, update” I click update the browser closes, I have the current version, and the notification pops up again even though I just updated to the current version. This erroneous notification is annoying. I will continue to use this browser regardless because I believe in this project, but this error will give a bad first impression to people who are trying to get off of chrome or IE.

Thanks -MIke

@dumptruk sorry about that. It’s happened to a few of our users.

Would you mind trying the steps here? https://github.com/brave/browser-laptop/wiki/End-User-FAQ#updates-are-available-but-applying-them-doesnt-work-on-macos

Just make sure someone that can fix it knows about my complaint. I’m
telling all my friends about this browser I don’t want to sound like an
idiot for recommending a browser that’s full of bugs. It’s hard enough to
pry people off of chrome…
