Brave auto updated now getting STATUS_ILLEGAL_INSTRUCTION

Description of the issue:
How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Trying to load, I get an Ah snap error stating STATUS_ILLEGAL_INSTRUCTION
  2. Load browser and go to above URLs

Expected result:

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Additional Information:
Windows 10, no browser extensions. The “About Brave” button (link) in browser results in the aw snap message as well. Oddly enough works. This started the day the browser updated to this version.


What additional steps have you taken?

  • Open page in a New Private Window ?
  • Restart Brave?
  • Restart your computer?

Maybe right-click on the little Padlock icon, and look over your settings for the webpage.
