Go to brave://settings/handlers and check to ensure this is enabled and that sites are allowed to ask you if you want them to be a default handler. If it’s already on, check to see if the handler icon appears in the address bar when you visit gmail. If so, click it, set gmail to be the default mail handler, and your issue should be resolved


That was totally it @Mattches . The handler icon was in the URL window. I clicked it and am fully functioning.

Thank you!
