@rcherry506 I am a bit confused on what you have. You marked on your topic and in your answer that you’re using iOS. But High Sierra should be Mac. The difference is that iOS is what runs on iPad and iPhone for the most part, whereas Mac is laptop and desktop. Could you confirm for me what you’re using?
In order to get this far, makes it feel more comfortable to say you’re using Mac. Are you getting any errors or anything when it hangs? Does it crash or just kind of sticks on a perpetual loading screen?
If click on the hamburger menu and create a new profile within Brave, do you experience the same issue?
What version of Brave are you using? (It was asked but not answered in your original template)
