Apologies, I didn’t pick up this message to me before now.
It was, I think, at the time when I noticed it,
I have also had that when I exit Brave using the white ‘x’ in the red block in the left hand, top corner, Brave wouldn’t come up again.
So now when I exit, I use ‘exit’ in the ‘hamburger’ and that seems to mean that I can bring up Brave again without having to restart the desktop. [Win7]
I use the browser in a very basic way - I think the terminology would be that I don’t have any ‘extensions’ - I’m very manual with passwords, I don’t get ‘ad-ons’ from ‘chrome’, [beginner in these matters] so I think I’m less prone to ‘bugs’ but my Brave does appear to be a bit 'tetchy. I’ll try and watch vigilantly again to make specific notes.
