My chosen homepage does not appear, only one of Brave's Asian photos

I have an iMac. I went to the trouble, under Brave’s preferences, to give the URL of my chosen homepage and mark it as my homepage. Yet, when I open Brave, it goes to one of its Japan pictures featuring the various stats. How can I make my chosen homepage appear upon startup?

Also, is there the capability to list my bookmarks vertically at the left side of the screen, so I can see them without having to click on Bookmarks or on the arrow on the right to see the whole list? Thank you.
