Description of the issue:
Brave is my default browser. It is up-to-date. I was frustrated because I could not cause GLOBE to appear in Google Maps - yet it works in Firefox (since Brave is disabled, I’m using Firefox to post here).
At a Google site, a user suggested
- going to brave://flags and
- choosing OVERRIDE SOFTWARE RENDERING LIST and
- ENABLED. This action was supposed to enable GPU-acceleration.
- Then, RELAUNCH the Brave browser. That is what I did.
All of the menus seem work, but every browser window is completely blank!!!
I don’t know how to remedy this. I tried downloading a new copy of Brave. That didn’t work.
I would really like to restore it to full operation, and retain my history and passwords.
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
- Launch Brave
- the browser window is completely blank except for the iMac 3 colored dots: red. yellow. green.
- The pulldown menus from the menubar all seem normal
Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
There is not much to show. Nothing appears in any browser window.
Brave seems to be operating, but it is not showing the contents of the browser windows. I would like to see it restored to full operation.
Reproduces how often:
Every time I open a Brave browser window.
Operating System and Brave Version(See the
About Brave page in the main menu):
iMac 24-inch, early 2009
chip: 3.06 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
memory: 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3
graphics: ATI RAdeon HD 4850 512 MB
I cannot see ‘About Brave’ – as you know – but I updated Brave just before I caused this problem, and I’ve just downloaded the latest version. So, Brave is current to 2021 March 29.
Brave is central to my day’s activities. I can live without Globe for Google, but I rely on being able to use Brave. I appreciate help in restoring this software. Thanks
