Brave crashes immediately on startup

Brave just crashes half a second after opening it. The only solution that makes it work is re-naming the application in the files, but then it won’t work when I use links and such from other programs.

I should not have to use a crippled version of brave to make it work. How is this issue solved without crippling Brave?


Check if Brave is still the default app browser as follows (for Windows 11):

  • Open Windows Settings
  • Click on Apps
  • Click on default Apps and choose Brave
  • Click on the extension you want to be opened by Brave htm, html, shtml, svg, webp, http, https, etc.
