Hi there @2Tone can you try disabling Hardware Acceleration in settings to see if this resolves the issue?

You’ll find this in Settings --> Additional Settings --> System --> Hardware Acceleration

Also, you can try reinstall the browser again to resolve any installation issue that may be causing the crash to happen.

Let me know if that works.
