Updating MacOS from 0.22.13 to 0.22.21

Hello All!

When updating your Brave on macOS from 0.22.13 to 0.22.21 you may see this notification:


which says: “Brave.app” is an application downloaded from the Internet. Are you sure you want to open it?

You are ok to click ‘Open’ on this. Due to an issue (https://github.com/brave/browser-laptop/issues/13088) which had been included in 0.22.13, your Brave update was quarantined which caused this notification. Version 0.22.21 reverts issue 13088 but you could still see this notification the first time you launch after downloading the update.

Additional information can be found here: https://github.com/brave/browser-laptop/issues/13826 and https://github.com/brave/browser-laptop/issues/13817

As always, if you have any questions please let us know.



I just updated to 1.22.21, but I still can’t open Brave in MAC 10.13.4 on my dock. I have to manually ask for a new window, and when Brave is my default, it won’t open when I click on a hyperlink. Is there something I can do?

@JustSayin I think what you’re seeing is related to this issue: https://github.com/brave/browser-laptop/issues/13689 (updated this link, I had previously pasted the wrong one)


Thanks @LaurenWags. So, can I surmise the issue is still being fixed?

@JustSayin - to confirm - in both scenarios you list, Brave is running but you don’t have any open windows? or is it that Brave is closed (not running at all)?

@LaurenWags When I click on Brave icon on my dock to get it going, no window pops up. I have to manually go to File and New Window to obtain a window. Similarly, I’ve had Brave as my default browser, but over the past week it does not open when I click on a hyperlink as it did in the past.

@JustSayin so are these steps to reproduce appropriate:

  1. Have Brave as your default browser.
  2. Launch Brave but close any open windows (Brave is still running, note black dot below the icon in the dock).
  3. Click on the Brave icon in the dock. No Window appears. Navigate to File > New Window or right click on the icon in the dock and select New Window. New window displays.
  4. Close new window (again, Brave is still running but no windows are open)
  5. Click on a hyperlink in a calendar app for example. Hyperlink does not open. Navigate to File > New Window or right click on the icon in the dock and select New Window. New window display and the hyperlink you selected is a tab within the new window.

Thanks very much, @LaurenWags. I appreciate your sticking with me. Though I’m a big user of technology, I’m not very savvy about how it’s created!

no problem, after researching a bit more i’m not sure that the logged issue will in fact fix your issues, which is why the steps to reproduce are very important :slight_smile: so if they are accurate then i’m going to get a new issue logged.

Terrific. I recently upgraded to High Sierra 10.13.4 and was concerned it was not as accepting of Brave as my prior version. I do like Brave very much.


I logged two issues:

Thanks for reporting these issues!
