PASSWORDS ERASED / Not Saving

I am using an older MacBook Pro from 2012, running Mac OS High Sierra. I have been using Brave for over a year and very happy with it.

HOWEVER…

The last software update erased all my passwords, and will not save any new passwords. It asks if I want to save a password, click save, but no password is saved.

Well it was a great browser while it lasted, now its useless.

Maybe related to this Brave Browser wants to use your confidential information stored in "Brave Safe Storage" in your keychain? 🤷
