@Dinalo Can you open in a Private tab and see if it works? Iā€™m asking as many places suggest to disable extensions. Private window should automatically do this for you, among other things.

already tried, not working :frowning:

@Dinalo Are you still experiencing a problem? Throwing in other suggestions just in case you are. If your issue has been resolved, can you please post how you fixed it. :smiley:

  1. brave://settings/content/protectedContent

  2. brave://components
    Check if up-to-date

  3. brave://settings/clearBrowserData`
    Clear history/cache for all time, exit browser, and reopen

  4. Create a new test profile and see if problem occurs in a new profile

  5. Make sure Brave (1.41.99 at this posting), your OS, and drivers are all updated to the latest versions.
