Metamask Not Connecting to ENS

Two questions.

I am trying to buy some domains using my Metamask account, but it doesn’t connect. (Chrome)
I tried another browser (Brave) and Metamask wasn’t even one of the choices.
Any bright ideas in here about this?

Is my ENS “account” associated with the browser I used when I set up my IPFS?

What error do you get when you press connect?

I don’t get an error,
it just doesn’t do anything at all
i can click all i want, nothing

maybe i’ll just use a different wallet

I wonder if this is why I cannot get past step 2. It is asking me to click Register and when I do nothing happens and my Metamask wallet does not open. I am in chrome.

Do you have more than enough ETH to pay the gas in addition to the registration fee?
