Okay, this is weird. This time the console does not say that the menu.lua file is missing, but the menu still does not show up. Only shows different builds and maps with the fade animation.

Did that. every time you launch the game it either shows a blue screen or an animation of GMod. I've also tried other fixes and nothing changed. Maybe the new macOS Monterey is somehow interfering with the program?
What version of macOS are you on specifically?

When you launch GMod after applying the fix, does macOS's Console.app say anything? There should also be a file called chromium.log in GMod's install that should have more info
Everything the console says after applying the fix:

No Files Need Fixing!
