Brave Hangs on mac 10.13.6

Brave: Latest version this evening on Mac 10.13.6

It has been working well for months until today.

Brave started to hang or crash many times today.

Where do I send crash report which mac automatically generates?

@boatkinson,
If you can go to Settings --> Privacy/Security you can enable Automatic crash reporting.
Can you tell me what version of the browser it is you’re using? You can find this by going to Menu --> About Brave

Thanks for your reply!

I did set auto-crash in Brave just now,

and also just now attempted to log into the Brave support page= hang up.

The hang or crash manifests as the spinning beach ball of Mac.

This occurred just as I pasted my long password into the box.

Another window was playing a Youtube and continued

after the crash for a few minutes before stopping.

I don’t know if Brave is able to send you the crash report in this case,

but I have restarted each time after two crashes just now.

I saved a text file of Mac’s crash report box which is usual for Mac apps.

Should I paste that into an email to you?

Bo

Brave version 1.4.95

Just happened today as well for me, Brave hanged and crashed, and when trying to restore tabs on restart, it CRASHED AGAIN… Now all tabs are lost! :frowning: and the files “Last Tabs” and “Last Sessions” just include the text “SNSS”… worst part it I was already in the progress to do a manual backup of the tabs, in case Brave would crash, managed to save half of them before it crashed ;(

Is it a specific page(s) that crashes Brave? If you disable Hardware Accelleration in Brave settings does that help?

This has been happening to me for over a month, with no change. Everytime I load the browser it hangs for almost 10 seconds. Even when opening a new window or private window.

I have reported this problem back in December, hardware acceleration is off. Problem persists. No one answered me then. Good to see someone has noticed now.

I would try a clean profile, no imported bookmarks, no extensions, default options. (maybe at most disable Hardware acceleration as an option). As a test.
