Thanks. Something definitely seems off.
In Settings all I see are these 4 categories:
Brave shields defaults
The last item displayed is Manage Extensions under ‘Extensions.’ There’s nothing below that, including no way to get to the ‘Advanced’ options.
Brave Dev also crashed a few minutes ago (while the computer was idle) and again didn’t reload numerous windows, although I clicked the option to restore in real time.
Some or possibly all of those windows/tabs that didn’t reload (except for Private) are aggregated under History, though other than windows that had only one tab only a ‘number of tabs’ is listed for each (i.e., the windows/tabs aren’t identified until the mouse pointer triggers the sub-menu for each).
This is in “Version 0.61.17 Chromium: 72.0.3626.81 (Official Build) dev (64-bit).”
I see a “Nearly up to date! Relaunch Brave to finish updating.” prompt so I’ll try doing that to see whether that fixes what’s going on & then post back.
