Brave installed from snap was running perfectly fine for months.
Since two days it is not starting when clicking Brave icon from launcher.
When attempting to run Brave from command line just calling
brave I am getting following warnings, browser starts but without all my profile data (bookmarks, configuration, history), and it is in unsafe --no-sandbox modee.

It looks like snap-AppArmor integration issue.
