Brave 'Error 500' Crashes

I am continually receiving ‘Error 500’ crash reports when trying to open a simple link from Gmail using the Brave browser.

This happens repeatedly, even after closing and reopening the same tab (to click on the link) and also restarting the browser entirely. When I tried to open this via Google Chrome, it worked without any issues:

Error 500–Internal Server Error

From RFC 2068 Hypertext Transfer Protocol – HTTP/1.1 :

10.5.1 500 Internal Server Error

The server encountered an unexpected condition which prevented it from fulfilling the request.

Hey kobayashi,

Can you confirm what verion of Brave you’re using? After that, I want you to try 2 things:

  1. Clear your cache and cookies to see if that remedies the problem.
  2. Try doing this in a new profile.

Hi Adrian,

Sure - I’m using v1.25.72 for reference.

Clearing my cache and cookies seemed to do the trick, so thanks for this!
