Unable to open any new tabs



When opening Brave, no tabs are open (homepage/dashboard/etc. doesn’t open) and no new tabs
can be opened normally. Also it was the day my payment was suppose to go through and the message didn’t show. Running windows 10 64bit

Steps to Reproduce

I’m unsure what the cause is but After uninstalling and reinstalling, the problem still remained. After moving the AppData/roaming/brave folder and reinstalling the browser and putting back the majority of files that was in AppData/Roaming/Brave, the browser worked again as normal and I got the message that my Brave Payment went through. I overwrote the remaining files and the tab glitch came back exactly the same. It seems whatever the issue is, is with one or so of those files.

Also I was able to get new tabs open by using the MetaMask Extension and opening something from within that, I could even get to the preferences menu or any webpage but couldn’t open any new tabs except through opening a link through metamask. https://i.imgur.com/S6JEAns.png
