Description of the issue:
Two to three weeks ago, I updated Brave to the newest version on my Mac. Ever since, my Gmail tab refreshes itself every few seconds. It’s literally unusable (I tried and failed tonight just to select two messages and delete them, but it refreshed before I could finish). All my other tabs are fine.
Gmail is stable in Firefox on two laptops, so I don’t think it’s Gmail (and if it were, I think we’d be hearing a ton of screaming about it). I’ve tried reinstalling Brave, which worked briefly until something set the behavior off again. Sometimes restarting the browser helps, and sometimes not. Same with rebooting the computer.
I’m pretty sure there was another Brave update since, and I was really hoping it was going to fix the problem, but it has not.
I finally gave up and started Firefox out of desperation, just for Gmail.
Anyone else seeing anything like this? Or have any idea how to fix it?
How can this issue be reproduced?
- Install Brave on macOS
- Load Gmail.
- Wait 15-20 seconds
Gmail refreshes so often it’s literally unusable.
Brave Version( check
I’m running macOS Big Sur 11.6 and Firefox 106.0.1
