Brave crash at startup on Debian KDE

Starting yesterday, Brave stable crashes a few seconds after startup. There was an update, that briefly resolved the issue, then it came back again today.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Start Brave with either an icon or via command line.

Expected result:

To start Brave normally with all the saved tabs and extensions.

**Brave Version: 1.56.11 Chromium: 115.0.5790.102

Additional Information:

Here’s the command line output:

I can start the browser using the --disable-extensions flag, but then I can’t save off any data stored in my extensions, and can’t load all the pages suspended by Tiny Suspender.

I’ve tried removing all the extension data folders from .config/BraveSoftware/Brave-Browser/ folder, but it still failed to start, so I can’t really try to test adding back extensions one by one, to find the culprit.

Not sure if it’s a browser issue, or a faulty extension, but checking most of my extensions’ last update time in Chrome store, I can’t really find any recent updates.

In the meantime, I’ve downgraded to 1.52.130, and things seem to work now. Tried downgrading to 1.56.9, but that didn’t solve the issue.

Glad I could save my opened tabs and OneTab data, but somehow still lost Session Buddy saved sessions… meh, better than losing everything.
