Brave crashes when using search bars (ie qwant)

Hi all. I am facing exactly the same problem as mentioned on Crash when using Qwant on Android

It appears that brave crashes due to bitwarden autofill. But since the topic is closed I want to reopen it because proposed solution is absolutely not a fix IMHO, since it is suggested that I should disable bitwarden autofill… Which I want to keep.

Also in addition to other topic, it is not just on qwant that this happens, I have also seen it on other sites when you click on a search bar and before the keyboard appears the crags happens. I do see it most often o’ qwant since that’s what I’m using most.
Here is the description taken from other post (with my app versions and phone though)

I encounter a problem since 2 or 3 versions of Brave, with Qwant search.

For the first search (in the url/search field, see picture) => no problem. But when I want do add something to refine, on Qwant itself (see picture with “test” in the search field) the browser crashes.

I don’t know if it is a script that makes Brave crash or something else.

How can this issue be reproduced?

Go on
Try to type something in the search field
It crashes :slight_smile:
Expected result:

Brave doesn’t crash ^^

Brave Version( check About Brave):

Brave 1.33.106 (Chromium 96.0.4664.110)

Mobile Device details

Realme x3 superzoom with Android 11; all softwares up to date.

Additional Information:

Thanks !

Can’t reproduce on my Zfold3. Does it occur with Ads/Trackers = Aggressive?

No it’s on standard.
It doesn’t happen every time but almost every time though. To reproduce you have to have auto fill turned on on bitwarden, do a search on qwant and then after the search has worked, if you click in the search bar of qwant it will crash :

Typically here if I click on “Test” in the qwant search bar it crashes

Same problem here. Brave mobile crashes when clicking on search field when using Qwant. Google and Brave search work just fine.

I’m on Realme 8 Pro
Brave ver. 1.33.106
Android 11, system/app updated

Edit: LastPass installed. When uninstalled everything works fine.

Ah yes, I have heard this before. Affected Chrome (and us).
