The first thing I would do would be to update to the latest release.
You are using the Muon Brave build. We have since deprecated Brave Muon in favor of this:


I highly recommend you install the new build and enjoy a much better browsing experience.
It runs in parallel with the Muon version you have installed now, so you don’t have to uninstall or overwrite anything and you can even import data from your previous Brave install into the new build.

If you decide you’d like to stick with the version you’re using now and want to resolve the problem, let me know and I’d be happy to assist.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any additional questions.

Hi @Mattches, thanks for your info. I thought I had the latest Brave version, because the CHECK FOR UPDATES button didn’t get any newer version.
I downloaded the latest now and it’s working fine, so I’m coming back to Brave (I was using Firefox because of this little bug, as I need Wikipedia everyday).

You can close this topic. Thanks for your support!
