Brave Crashes - Ctrl+C and/or Ctrl+V

Brave Browser Crashes whenever I use Ctrl+C and/or Ctrl+V since a few days.

@parabytes why did you put this under Brave Search? Doesn’t seem to be anything Search related? If you’d put it under the proper category, you would have gotten a template requesting information that is kind of necessary in order to better help you.

That said, I’m going to list some questions below with information we need to know from you.

  • Which version of Brave are you using? (Exact version number, don’t just say “the latest.”)

  • Which OS? (Windows 11, Linux Mint 21.2, etc)

  • Do you have anything at brave://crashes?

When checking for brave://crashes, if you see the words Send Now then you’ll need to click on that and fully exit Brave for about 20-30 seconds. Brave needs to be closed in order to send the crash reports. Then you should be able to return to brave://crashes and it will now show an Uploaded Crash Report ID alongside each crash report.

You will need to copy/paste the Uploaded Crash Report ID here. Obviously, you’ll want to use your mouse and avoid using Ctrl+C and/or Ctrl +V since you’re saying that causes your browser to crash.

Other things to check:

  • Does this happen in Private window?

  • Does this happen if you add a new profile and test on it, making sure not to add extensions or change settings?
