Reproduced using 1.34.81 arm64 pkg installer when it was tagged with a referral code.
Brave-Browser-arm64.pkg from https://github.com/brave/brave-browser/releases/tag/v1.34.81
- Renamed to
- Installed from this pkg file
- Attempted to launch, immediate crash was observed
- Looking at the profile folder, I also saw this (folder name should just be Brave-Browser, not Brave-Browser-arm64)
- Removed BraveSoftware folder and Brave Browser application
- Renamed installer back to the original name
- Installed again
- Confirmed no crash on launch
Brave crashes on Macbook Pro M1 and won't even open for a second - #2 by 289wk
Usually fixes the problem:
Remove the BraveSoftware folder at:
Suggest that you initially move that BraveSoftware folder to the Mac Desktop; and keep that BraveSoftware folder until Brave Browser will run; and THEN delete that folder from the Mac Desktop.
WHEN Brave Browser starts up, the browser will create a new BraveSoftware folder - replacing what you removed.
