Hello @wretch

Thank you for reaching out and for the detailed report and sorry to hear you’re having trouble with Brave Browser. Can you try disabling Hardware Acceleration in settings to see if this resolves the issue?

You’ll find this in Settings --> Additional Settings --> System --> Hardware Acceleration

Additionally, please try to open a new page using private mode or guest mode. Let me know if that works and have a nice day! :wave:
