Brave Crashing Immediately Upon Opening


Description of the issue: Brave Beta keeps crashing immediately when trying to open. I have tried opening it via link, the .exe directly, as well as via terminal. I have Windows 11 Home 21H2 OS Build 22000.556 with Windows Feature Experience Pack 1000.22000.556.0. It is also happening on my distro of the latest Ubuntu on my personal laptop as well. I have Ubuntu 21.10 installed on my personal laptop. It’s weird but it’s not happening on my work laptop (also Windows 11 Home) yet or my phone (Android).

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Open via the shortcut link on the desktop
  2. Open via the .exe file directly in file explorer
  3. Open via the terminal

Expected result: For Brave to open without crashing

Brave Version( check About Brave): Unable to check version on machines where it is crashing as it crashing immediately, but the version on my work laptop is:

[Version 1.38.80 Chromium: 100.0.4896.79 (Official Build) beta (64-bit)]

Additional Information: I have Brave Beta on all of my machines. I do not use the regular release version of Brave currently.
