Clicking on Brave Icon Won't Bring Up Browser


I’m having the same problem again as I documented in this previous post:

Description of the issue:

When I click on the Brave icon in my menu Brave I get the “working” cursor for a few seconds and then nothing opens. Sometimes a browser window opens for a short time and then closes without any other action.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.

This happens every time. It began after Brave froze and I had to reboot. It happens whether I choose Brave from the startup menu (Linux Mint) or the icon on the bottom tray.

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):

Nothing to screenshot. Brave just doesn’t open.

Expected result:

I would like Brave to come up.

Reproduces how often:

Brave Version(about:brave):

I can’t open Brave to see the version, but it must be a recent version because I keep installing it anew from the Linux Mint Software Manager. I haven’t had this problem on Mac OS.

Reproducible on current live release (yes/no):

Additional Information:

I am on Linux Mint on a ZaReason laptop. I have been using Brave for only a few weeks so my version cannot be very old.

I am able to open other browsers (Chrome, Firefox) just not Brave.

I now understand that I can delete the Brave browser without losing my BATs.

Thank you!
