I have been using Brave version 0.12.13. Windows 7 Home is my OS. After the latest Brave update, I am unsure what version I am running. My explanation follows.
Immediately after installing the latest brave update (about 4 days ago), invoking the application using the task bar icon initiates the launch, but as soon as the browser window begins to display, it disappears. I installed a Brave internet shortcut on my desktop. Clicking on the shortcut produces the same disappearing window behavior.
Using the Windows “All Programs” menu, I clicked on the icon for the brave executable file for Brave version 0.12.13. The browser window opened, remained on display, and executed all functions as designed.
Would really like a solution without having to uninstall, download, and import bookmarks or re-tweak all my settings.
