@jscreator Do you have any extensions on your browser? In particular, perhaps have Bitdefender? I’m asking as we’ve been seeing it as a cause in most of the people who reported the browser crashing lately.
A few others were things like just needing to do an update, toggle hardware acceleration, switch to Vulkan in flags, etc. But overall, it’s been extensions.
@jscreator Do a favor. Go to https://brave.com/download/ and download again. This will basically just be a manual update, but it will reapply everything to your device. So if you had an issue in the installation, it might fix it. (of course, when all is said and done, make sure to check and make sure it’s using the most recent update).
Also, if it does continue crashing, make sure you try to navigate to brave://crashes and see if there’s any reports there. If so, try to submit if there’s that option. If already submitted, it should show some crash ID. Try to provide those details.
Makes it sound like it’s not crashing then. You may have something like a firewall, antivirus, or whatever else that’s interfering. You could try clearing cookies again in case it’s that. Primarily may have to be @Mattches who may have to try to help you.
Oh yeah, and I forgot what day it is. Just a FYI, it’s Friday night. For the most part, Support tends to be active Monday through Friday. In this, you may not hear anything for a few days except for maybe other Users who might have suggestions.
@jscreator It can be. Best way to test it is to temporarily disable it. I’ve had issues like that happen in the past with games, web browsers, etc. It’s usually a glitch. The only reason I mention it as a test is because of that past experience.
I mean, beyond that you can make sure your system is updated and all. For example, Apple just released 13.0.1
I mentioned verifying Brave is updated, which you do by going to Settings → About within Brave.
I probably could list a bunch of other random ideas that may or may not make a difference.
Frankly, might even say to remove all things Brave from your device and do a clean install, just to see if it makes a difference. Might even say that instead of opening a new browser, to right click the icon and open in a private window to see if it works. Another aspect is to create a new profile and test with that, just in case it’s a corrupt profile. (browser profile, I mean)
Way too many possibilities. Most of which are all a shot and may not do much of anything.
