May I start by saying I am a big fan and advocator of Brave against other browsers. I recommend and advocate its use to all computer and phone users.
I am running a Sony Vaio with Windows 64 bit and the Brave Browser Version 1.42.86 Chromium 104.0.5112.81.
I am getting the DNS_PROBE_ERROR on many websites. I have searched answers and cleared the cache, switched DNS providers back and forth withour any result.
I use Norton 360 with its built-in VPN as security. When the error occurs I switch off the VPN, switch it back on and then refresh the website. Hey presto, it works.
I run the same extensions on a backup browser and get no issues implying the extensions are not at fault. To be sure I switch off all extensions to highlight if they are causing the error.
I am getting frustrated and my searches had recommended using Mozilla Firefox instead. I am so frustrated I am thinking of using Firefox as my default browser.
Can anyone help please?
