Brave crashes after accessible keyboard is enabled =
I recently tried using your browser but the browser has a problem that has occurred in a couple applications since macOS Catalina. The Spotify Desktop for Mac and Google Chrome browser had this problem as well but Spotify and Google have fixed this.
The problem that occurs is that the browser will instantly crash when the accessible keyboard is enabled.
If the accessible keyboard is currently enabled and you try to open the app it instantly crashes.
And if the accessibility keyboard is disabled you’re able to open the browser and everything works fine, but once you enable the keyboard for typing it will crash a couple seconds after.
This hinders a lot of people with disabilities looking to use the Brave browser. So I thought it would be best to notify you of the problem so we can be fixed. Let me know if you have any other questions regarding this I could always make a video of my screen to show the problem. Here is how to enable the accessibility keyboard for your own testing.
System Preferences > Accessibility > Keyboard > Accessibility Keyboard > Enable Accessibility Keyboard
Spotify and Google Chrome have fixed this problem so they might have some answers for you.
