Brave crashes when opening settings

Description of the issue:
Opening any Brave settings will immediately crash the browser.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. top-right hamburger menu → settings.
  2. top-right hamburger menu → help → About brave.
  3. typing in the address bar brave://settings, then hitting enter.

Expected result:
The browser crashes altogether. The restore tab option is prompted upon re-opening Brave.

Brave Version( check About Brave`):
Windows Desktop v1.59.117(Oct 11, 2023)

Additional Information:
Windows 10 Pro

This happens to me too after the last Brave browser update.

I’m using the 64 bit Brave browser on Windows 11 Pro.

I’ve gone into brave://crashes and sent the error reports.

Go to brave://flags and set Enable experimental Brave VPN to default or enabled, then restart the browser. Now it should stop crashing when you open the settings.
