Brave keeps crashing 5-10 secs after launch

Description of the issue:

Brave continously crashing 5-10sec after opening, even with no sites open. I notice as soon as I open Brave my memory usage on task manager seems to start spiking before crashing.

Important to note this seemed to happen after I was using a generative art tool powered on a vercel app, automatic downloads were occurring after each output every 5-10 seconds. It seemed fairly demanding on my PC but not extreme. Seems like it’s bugged out my browser now?

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Open Brave
  2. Wait/do anything in Brave for 5-10 seconds before instant crash

Expected result:
To work

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Version 1.63.162 Chromium 122.0.6261.69 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Windows 10

Additional Information:
I’ve managed to clear all cache/history etc, turn on/off a bunch of the usual recommended settings (hardware acceleration, memory saver etc.), disabled all extensions, tried reinstalling, using private window / new user profile and still no luck. Brave Nightly does work however.

I had the same issue occur directly on Chrome, but Chrome has seemed to fix after a PC restart, whereas same issue continues to occur on Brave

One of many crash ID’s I can send through:


Confirming I fixed the crashing issue, however I did so by deleting the default app data folder for Brave, then reinstalled. I then resynced my account to get my bookmarks and some other settings back.

I did make a copy of the original default folder though, is there a way to import this back so I have 100% of my previous data back - or no?
