Additional Information:

I think the problem is that I entered sync chain code from Brave Stable into Brave Dev which is causing the crash when it tries to sync because as so as it gets to that step, it crashes. Apparently, you can sync Brave Stable and Brave Dev in Brave Stable, but not the other way around.

The solution to the problem is to leave the sync chain before the Brave Dev browser crashes. Go to the Sync page as soon as you launch and hit the leave chain button.

Hi @smisic1, Version 0.70.93 fixed this for me. I’m trying to track this issue here:

Thanks! I’ll try the update.
