Starting with the latest 2 Brave updates, GMail no longer displays the list of e-mail messages properly. There should be a square box near the left margin of each message row, allowing that message to be selected, but no box is there. Other icons near the upper right are also missing, such as the < > arrows that allow selecting a different range of messages in a long list.
When viewing a message, there should also be an icon at upper right that allows one to expand the text of all messages in a chain, but no such icon is present.
In Google News, the first batch of stories appears, but when there is a story category break, the rest of the story window is empty.
All of those features work properly in Firefox for me. They used to work fine in Brave until the latest 2 updates.
I currently use Version 1.18.75 Chromium: 87.0.4280.101 (Official Build) (x86_64) on MacOS Big Sur version 11.1.
