Brave closes when I click the Profile button

Description of the issue:
When I click the Profiles button to open a different profile, the browser closes.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Click the Profile button.

Expected result:
Open list of profiles so can switch to a different profile.

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Version 1.23.75 Chromium: 90.0.4430.93 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:
I can go to a different profile by double clicking on shortcuts I have on my Windows desktop. Just can’t use the button in the upper right of the browser as I was able to do in the past.

Hi @waggoner1, Welcome to Community!
Can you go to brave://settings/extensions and disable all of your extensions and test opening a profile?

That did not make a difference.


Can you go to, download a new installer and re-run it. Your info in Brave will not be lost. Please make sure all running instances of Brave are closed before doing so by using activity monitor.

I did that but it didn’t make any difference. Thanks.

Hi @waggoner1, Welcome to Community!
Please go to brave://settings/help and update Brave to the latest version and let us know if that resolves the issue.

I always keep it up to date. I just did in the last day or two and it did not make any difference. Actually, it seems that this issue started right after an update.
