I have a problem using google sites on Brave. I see this is all over the forums and I’ve had this problem multiple time in the past after version updates.
I’ve gotten into the habit of just switching to Chrome or Safari. I’m not looking for something very complex nor something that will cause information loss. If that’s the only way to solve it, that’s totally fine, but I’m at the point where I’ll just switch to a different browser that has less bugs.
Description of the issue:
Gmail and other google sites do not work on Brave after last update (version 1.58.131 Chromium 117.0.5938.92). A few other sites seem to be affected. I’ve had this problem happen multiple times in the past (4-5) and it’s incredibly frustrating.
Sites will not load at all.
I already tried accessing them with shields down, doing the whole log-in process with shields down, deleting all browsing data from all time, disabling and removing extensions, as well as solutions I saw on this topic in other forums. Resetting my cache, cookies. Nothing seems to work.
However, the google sites load when using private browsing.
I’m using MacOS Ventura 13.6.
Steps to Reproduce:
Just access youtube, or gmail, or another google sites.
Actual Result :
Sites will not load, it seems like the browser goes on an “infinite loop”
Reproduces how often:
Every time I try to access a google site
I’m not open to suggestions that include: download macos cleanup, add a new profile, backup your browser folder and then reinstall brave. I’m looking for a solution that keeps my history, bookmarks, settings, generally intact. I have multiple profiles set up and I’m not looking to recreate.
Thanks! Appreciate all the help!
