I upgraded to 1.4.96 (I don’t know which version I was running before) on Windows. Using the 32 bit version. All of a sudden it doesn’t recognize registered publishers any more (e.g. Duck Duck Go). The check icon doesn’t show, and if click the triangle it no longer has any Tipping controls. it just shows my funds and March summary.
EDIT: Just saw that Brave’s BAT ledger service keeps the CPU at 100%: https://i.gyazo.com/27da20b2b1ce14ee278791bfe00d2906.png
Process Hacker says the function causing it is
GetHandleVerifier in `brave.exe!GetHandleVerifier+0x961e0
I tried disabling all extensions. Nothing changed. If I try to kill the “Bat Ledger Service” from Brave’s task manager, it just comes right back and instantly at 100% CPU again.
Also, if I go to “reward settings” it shows the wrong amount of my balance (orders of magnitude wrong). It also says “Next payment date: Mar 5” … which is in the past (date of this post is Mar 8). Also, clicking on “7-day Ads history” shows an empty table (whereas I had loads of them in the past week).
I installed v1.3.118 from github (and verified I’m running 1.3.118 in About) … it does the same thing.
Something’s off. Seems like server side? Can someone confirm?
