Hello there @matstage , please accept my apologies for this issue. Can you try disabling Hardware Acceleration in settings to see if this resolves the issue? You’ll find this in Settings --> Additional Settings --> System --> Hardware Acceleration

Also, try opening your main profile in private or guest mode to see if the pages open when using TAB? If they do open, try disabling your extensions to see if this is the cause of the issue.

  1. On your computer, open Brave.
  2. At the top right, click Menu → More tools → Extensions.
  3. On to the extension you want to remove, click Remove.
  4. Confirm by clicking Remove.

Let me know if that works.

None of that worked.
Turning off the Top Sites and on again helped…

We wil see if it sticks!
