So this is really strange…
Just today my Brave Browser started to crash when I opened a new tab and wanted to load a website.
When I tried to reopen it, it crashed immediately.
After like 5 tries to reopen the browser it did open but as soon as I typed in a url and hit enter it crashed again.
This issue started happening out of the blue, never had it before…
Maybe it’s related to the recent macOS update?
Experience it as well in High Sierra, if I’ve opened a link from another application like mail, slack etc. Brave can crash, and if I reopen, it instantly crashes again. Solution is either to log out or restart…
Most annoying part is loosing all tabs, and the last tab file just states SNSS… Really hope they would fix tabs recovery, it’s unstable and have experienced 10 crashes so far 2020
Brave 1.5.122 was released earlier today (Direct Download Link), so you might want to download the dmg, copy the new version to Applications, and see if that changes anything. I use Nightly, so while I downloaded and installed 1.5.122, my usage of it wouldn’t really qualify as testing for this issue.
My main install is Brave 1.8.59 Chromium: 81.0.4044.83 (Official Build) nightly (64-bit) on macOS Version 10.15.4 (Build 19E266). I have to update to 1.8.61.
