Importing bookmarks from Chrome freezes Brave

bug

#1

I’m using Brave version 0.22.669 on macOS High Sierra version 10.13.4.

When I imported my bookmarks from Chrome, I got the spinning colour wheel for the duration of the import and Brave was totally unresponsive.


#2

As of June 16, 2018, I have had the same issue with the latest Braver v. 22.810 on High Sierra 10.13.4.
Only difference being that no import took place at all. It asked for my password twice, then froze and became unresponsive. Import was not initiated and a Force Quit was required.
Evidently, this has remained an issue for the last few updates.
