Description of the Issue:
Whenever I open Brave’s settings, Brave crashes around 5 seconds later. If I try changing any of the settings, Brave instantly crashes. It makes it impossible for me to change or even view my settings.
Steps to Reproduce: 1. Launch Brave 2. Navigate to brave://settings
My Brave window crashes
Brave should allow me to change/look at my settings
Reproduces How Often:
Version 1.40.113 Chromium: 103.0.5060.114 (Official Build) (x86_64)
Reproducible on Current Live Release:
I’m using macOS Monterey v 12.4
Is a Crash Report ID the same thing as Local Crash Context? If so, the local crash context has changed every time Brave crashed. Here are the 4 times it happened today, from most recent to least recent:
Can you try creating a new profile in the browser and test to see if the browser crashes the same way when using the new profile and navigating to or changing any settings? Ensure that you only have one window open (the one with the new profile) when performing this test.
Hi @Mcretten sorry to hear that you’ve been having issues with the browser.
Just to confirm, did you try the troubleshoot solution I shared above?
There is another workaround with resetting your brave://flags if you are unable to launch Brave. See instructions below.
Do let me know if this works out for you.
