By Brave browser doesn’t store any history and doesn’t show frequently visited top sites on new tab page. Brave Rewards card on new tab page shows 0 balance even though I have funds and have been collecting rewards from the rewards button in the address bar. This has been the case for several months.
Whenever I start Brave or update, I get the error “Profile error occurred” with message body
“Something went wrong when opening your profile. Some features may be unusable.”
I’m on the most recent version of the browser (1.30.89) as of today on macOS 10.13.6.
I’ve tried reinstalling before and reinstalling now is NOT an option as I would lose all my BAT rewards.
I’ve seen this help topic here: “Profile Error Occured: Some Features May be Unavailable” but have no idea how to “try to close brave and make sure it does not work on the background then start brave using this flag.” I’ve tried using
open -a /Applications/"Brave Browser".app –user-data-dir=“/User/user/Desktop"
in Terminal without success
Any suggestions or ideas?
