Brave browser keeps automatically shutting down

bug

#1

Anybody else experiencing browser suddenly shutting down in mid-activity? My brave browser has just started doing this after months of use. It also opens sometimes blocking cookies. It has been doing that for a little while now.

Brave 0.23.77
V8 6.8.275.24
rev 0125b5f
Muon 8.0.6
OS Release 6.1.7601
Update Channel Release
OS Architecture x64
OS Platform Microsoft Windows
Node.js 7.9.0
Brave Sync v1.4.2

I am using windows 7 on a hp laptop. Thanks in advance.


#2

Hi @KateE,

Can you update your Brave to the latest release (0.23.79) and see if the issue still persists?

Thanks
:slightly_smiling_face:


#3

Thanks, I will download now, as the browser has now decided not to open at all. It’s been going well for months until now.


#4

For some reason I am having a problem with downloading

Error 503 first byte timeout
