Thanks for the reply.
I’ve tried what you describe and it does not solve the issue.
Brave is already my default browser.

I’ve tried your suggestion.
Making a search from the address bar works well, no crash.
The app crashes only when I use the search bar on I made a test with chrome and chrome crashed too.

Clearing the app cache didn’t change anything.

Thank you.
