Tried updating multiple times from the older version (info below) as well as a clean uninstall/download/install but the newest Brave update (Brave Browser v0.22.727) always hangs upon opening.
I’ve tried the 32 bit and 64 bit versions from the brave website but they both have the same hanging issue. It does not matter if I have a few tabs open or none, brave fails to finish loading the home page and then says program unresponsive if I try to click on the program’s window.
The reason I’m still using this specific old version is that it’s the most recent downloaded install exe that I have that works. Brave successfully updated from within the program until the last update. Please help.
