Apologies for missing you post(s). Lots of big changes going on here at Brave and sometimes things slip through the cracks. Thank you for calling it out, we’re always trying to improve ourselves in all areas - not just our product.
As for your problem, I don’t see anything logged that describes the issue you’re seeing but I do have a solution. If you are unaware, Brave has been making a big shift this year, switching from our previous Muon based build (this is the one you’re using now that you’re unable to update to v0.24.0) to a new one based on the open source chromium engine. If you’d like to learn more about why we made the change, you can read this blog post by our CTO Brian Bondy where he speaks on the subject in greater detail.
We recently released the Beta version of this new build to the public. There still many features and design/UI changes being implemented, but it’s perfectly suitable for daily use. This build addresses many known issues we had with our old one (Muon) and adds additional functionality not present (or possible) previously.
I highly recommend jumping over to the Beta release. At the very least, I can guarantee you that it will update and relaunch without issue
