Metamask Not loading in Brave browser

Metamask is not loading in Brave browser. It is stuck in the loading phase everytime I open the extension. I’ve tried restarting the browser and the laptop. Only other wallet active on the browser is Phantom. Anyone know what the solution is?

Thank you for reaching out to us.
Can you share a screenshot of what the extension looks like on your end when it gets stuck?

Additionally, what do you have the default Ethereum wallet set to in Settings --> Web3?

Same problem as OP

default wallet set as Extensions

What version of Brave and OS are you experiencing this on? Thanks!

If you press F12 and visit the Console section, do you see any errors when attempting to open Metamask?

Using version v1.63.165

The screenshot posted above by another user is exactly what I see. Metamask keeps trying to load and doesn’t prompt for password input.

Here are the errors I get.

Here is the screenshot and wallet settings on the browser.

Looks like its an issue related to Chromium. What Chromium version are you on?

Metamask extension loading stuck on Version 122.0.6261.6 (Official Build) beta (64-bit)

Do you know what the fix is?

chromium 122.0.6261.94
Windows 11

Didn’t work for me. I also got out of the browser and back in. Still didn’t work. The update seemed to be successful and I got a success message for that but Metamask still hangs with no password prompt.

Does anybody from Brave support read this forum? If not, is there a way to report bugs, like a Jira or BugTrack or something like that?

Tried clearing cache and all cookies for all time after doing the dev mode update and still no luck. Is there any support from Brave for extensions working? If not, should I go back to Chrome for this? I had a pretty complex setup in Metamask and recreating it in another browser is going to be pretty difficult.

Apparently, the version of Metamask got stuck and I can’t get it to update. Is there a way to dump my configs, re-install metamask and the wallet, then import my configs?

Same issue for me, I have updated metamask extention using brave in Lunix Debian and is still keeping in loading state.
