The first site I noticed the crash/hang was http://ace.mu.nu
However, it is inconsistent. Sometimes it works fine and others, it loads about 3/4 of the way and (especially if I start scrolling down) then stalls and the “Brave isn’t responding. Do you want to close it?” message pops up with the option to report, wait or ok (to close Brave). Today, the site stalled. Once it fully loads, however, it works fine, even if I reload it, until I close the tab and close Brave by swiping it off the recent app list (upon a new Brave session and page load the problem comes back).
Also, I noticed going to http://hooktube.com and trying to load a video seems more consistent in stalling Brave (going straight to youtube to view videos works fine, however). There are other sites I’ve experienced it on but can’t remember them right now. Maybe embeded stuff causes an issue???
When I’ve selected wait sometimes it works (after a while and usually having to hit “wait” a few more times as the ‘ins’t responding’ message will pop up again) other times, the device locks up and screen goes blank for a while (the phone will respond after a while and then I close out brave without the page loading). When I launch the Brave app it will try to load the tab/page again so I have to quickly close the tab otherwise things will lock up agian.
Scripts are allowed in shield settings (turning off all shields doesn’t seem to help either). I also checked my “Running” apps in Android settings and didn’t see any overload.
Any ideas? Is it a known issue w/ Brave (I searched and didn’t see anthing here)? Is it an Android/Phone system/conflicting app issue (if so, how would I figure this out)?
Addendum: Tried loading a video on a local news station and it won’t load so I tried going to a national site: http://video.foxnews.com. I turned off all Shields and the video wouldn’t load, when I tried to scroll down a bit, things lagged a bit but didn’t error out (video never loaded).
