I’m unable to re-produce. What MacOS version are you using? Have you added any new extensions? Do you know what Brave version you updated from?

Hi, it doesn’t give me enough time to click anywhere. The window opens and closes in a second. My MacOS version is 13.5.2 (22G91). I have not added any extensions or done anything different or changed settings. I don’t know what upgrade I had before, but I normally click on the UPDATE button every time i see it.

Hi @Cteubner - please refrain from commenting on other user’s posts with unrelated comments. Thank you.

I have an old macbook and I’m using Mac OS 10.12. I clicked update and now I can’t even open Brave as it says you need to have Mac 10.15 just to open it. i can’t even access all my passwords and bookmarks now lol. What a massive pain. Does Brave have a library of older versions that I can access and then download? Otherwise, I guess I can’t use Brave on my older laptop anymore. Boooo!

That’ll teach me to update!
