Brave crashes when first opening

bug

#1

Sometimes, when I am starting up Brave, it crashes. It does not even get to the point of displaying the home page. Sometimes I see a window but it’s all black and it quickly closes. Other times it displays a little bit differently, I forget how exactly.

This happens 1/4 - 1/3 of the time that I open Brave.

Version 0.58.21 Chromium: 71.0.3578.98 (Official Build) (32-bit)

Reproducible on current live release: YES

Additional Information: I have the previous Brave version also installed on my computer (Muon, I think it’s called). I never took note of it crashing in the previous version but now that I think about it, it did sometimes seem like when I started the program, it just didn’t start. At the time that that happened, I didn’t think much of it and I just thought that I didn’t click the icon properly to open it.

Could you try disabling hardware acceleration?

open to brave://settings/?search=acceleration
And toggle Use hardware acceleration when available off.
