[R-SIG-Mac] Blank help window

I recently migrated to a MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2018) using the Migration Assistant.  Everything went well, though there are always a few things that don't transfer such as applications installed by Brew which I installed manually.

An issue with R arose I can't solve.  The help systen opens with a blank window.

Help works when I run R from the terminal so I know the files are installed.  Help works fine on the Macintosh I used a the source for the migration so it isn't a problem I inherited.  Re-installing R (see sessionInfo below) didn't solve the problem.

Anyone have any suggestions how I can get help to work?
