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.

Hello again! @John92

And thanks for your reply. I’ll share this information with my support team, so they can be aware about this!

Have a great day.

Hello. Any progress with this bug? The browser is pretty unusable because of this.

Btw Brave also crashes on the DuckDuckGo web search with the same reproduction steps.

Can you please confirm that you’re seeing this issue on the latest version of the browser (v1.48.158 at the time of writing this)? Additionally, I know that you tried clearing the app cache, can you please try clearing the site cache in the browser using the steps below?

  1. Launch Brave
  2. Go to Menu —> Settings
  3. Tap Site settings
  4. Tap All sites
  5. Search for
  6. Tap on it in the list
  7. Tap Clear & reset at the bottom

Test this behavior again.

I’m experiencing the exact same crash for weeks. Even if I apply all the updates, even if I clear the caches nothing changes.

It doesn’t just happen on google or duckduckgo. It happens on bings search bar too.

Crash report: 55ac0100-4c89-a009-0000-000000000000

Autofill(/Password) manager: Dashlane

I’m using version 1.48.160, which is the latest version on Google Play as of today. I deleted the data for as you wrote, but the crash is still easily reproducible using the steps in the OP. I did the same for but the problem remains there as well.

Occasionally the browser doesn’t crash, but I’m not sure yet what I was doing differently.

Can you please tell me the crash report IDs from these crashes, found on your brave://crashes page?

There are many, so here are a few of them:

Would you mind trying to disable your Autofill provider in Android settings and then test again and see if you get the same behavior? While the steps to find these settings will vary by device, you should be able to search in your Android settings for Autofill and find the right setting.

Please set the Autofill service to None, close/relaunch the browser, then try testing the behavior again and tell me if the browser still crashes.

@Mattches Jackpot! I switched autofill off and the problem is gone. My autofill provider is Bitwarden.
Does that mean the bug is caused by Bitwarden? I’ve been using it for at least two years and the problem appeared pretty recently, about a month or two.

Thank you for the information.
We are not yet clear on whether or not the issue is bitwarden specifically — can you please tell me the exact device type and Android OS you’re using when you see this issue?

Thank you

Android 10 - EMUI (C432E5R1P4patch01)

Hello, it also works for me when I deactivate the autofill. I use bitwarden also but i don’t think it is related because i got the same issue when i activate the autofill with google services.
