Clearing browser data with the following settings:
Got a warning (nice!! :D) and changed the settings (exceptionally I know what I’m doing) to this:
Then restarted brave and middle-clicked the offending link. A new (background) tab opens, then Brave crashes.
Edit 1: Next, renamed the folder …/Appdata/Local/brave to …/Appdata/Local/brave-old and …/Appdata/Roaming/brave to …/Appdata/Roaming/brave (got a warning, closed Brave, retry, OK), then clicked on the Brave-Icon on the desktop. Brave starts - I wonder how it found its .exe… But anyway, this seems to amount to a fresh installation: I got this view first (already changed the switch to off)
and clicked “Jetzt nicht”. OK so far. Went to community.brave.com
… and before I do anything further, I send this edit off.
Edit 2: Next, I middle-clicked the link, a new tab opens… and Brave DOES NOT CRASH! Yay!! Finally some change!
OK, that may be a possible solution. But what may have caused it? I’m megacurious now!
@sriram any idea about how to proceed in finding the cause of the crashes?
Edit 3: Since I deleted the browser data right before the renaming, the old folders should not contain any browsing history and no passwords except the one for this community. How can I remove that one? Otherwise I’d be ready to pack up everything into a 7zip file and send it to someone - maybe to you? @sriram
But I’m also ready to fiddle with the settings until it breaks again - or not
