Brave crashes immediately after starting

After the recent update, Brave crashes immediately after starting, even before I try to restore my tabs. It looks like it’s working for about 30 seconds, then hangs for another 30 and then crashes. This is on Windows 11.

Hello @vakubov

Thanks for the information, I’ve shared this with our team and I’m waiting for further information on the matter. Once our team has answers, we will get back to you as soon as possible.


So it looks like the culprit was in the directory
~\AppData\Local\BraveSoftware\Brave-Browser\User Data\Default\shared_proto_db

Once I deleted that directory, the browser was able to start correctly. Before I deleted it, the memory utilization was spiking into 100% of memory before crashing.
