1. When searching in the browser something and once the results show, after like 5 seconds the whole page becomes black and nothing can be seen. After the page becomes black I can still click on links and the website loads but in the search page, nothing can be seen.
2. For the past days ads are back, on several websites
How can this issue be reproduced?
Go on the search bar and type in something (e.g. YouTube)
Additional Information: The issue with the black screen has been happening for quite some time now and it is very annoying. I have updated everything to the latest version on brave://components as seen in other posts. The issue still occurs
The issue with the ads has been happening for the past 2 days, I see other people having the same issue but I could not find a fix
To confirm, the behavior is simply running a search in the address bar of the browser, then ~5s after the results are displayed the page goes black — correct? If so, what search engine are you using where you see this behavior? What happens if you run a search on the search engine directly rather than through the address bar? Further, if you use a different search engine do you see this same behavior?
This issue is happening when searching in both the address bar and the google search engine. Like mentioned by you I decided to switch from Google to a different search engine and it seems to be working for now. I guess that issue is happening only when using Google.
For now I will be using a different search engine - other than Google, but if you are able to provide a fix for these issues, that would be great. Thank you
The first thing I would recommend trying it clearing cache/site data for Google.com. Click the “tune” icon in the address bar next to the URL, then click Site settings --> Delete data. Reload the site and test again.
I’m also curious as to whether or not you see this same behavior when you search in Google using a private browsing window.
Apologies for letting your thread slip through the cracks. Out of curiosity, since we’ve had a few updates since we last talked, are you still seeing this issue after updating the the latest build (v1.59.124)?
When this issue occurs, can you please right-click on the page, select Inspect then go to the Console tab in the resulting dev tools window and share a screenshot of the output in the Console window with us here?
