as requested just the facts:
Description of the issue:
Brave was crashing by itself after ~a day of working fine. This happens in the evening (20:00 - 21:00 CET). Restarting just shows me the warning whether the previous window should be re-opened and crashes again. Recently it started to crash by itself also during the day. I couldn’t find a scheme in it (not on the same websites, no special action (sync etc.)
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
Not possible 'cos it is too irregular. But I can send a crash report.
It does NOT have something to do with visiting certain websites!
Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
Just open as expected
Reproduces how often:
Daily, if not every few hours.
Operating System and Brave Version(See the
About Brave page in the main menu):
But also happens with the latest Brave Browser Nightly
I do not use Braves bookmark sync but floccus https://github.com/marcelklehr/floccus
Tabs to Front v2
uBlock Origin 1.24.2
Nimbus Screenshot & Screen Video Recorder 9.0.3
Adblock Plus 3.7
But disabling them doesn’t fix the problem!
It CAN be fixed by restarting the whole computer and clearing the whole SYSTEM CACHE (starting in Safe Boot by holding down Shift, then restart immediately).
So it seems to me that Brave is storing something in Cache which either becomes too large or can’t be read by Brave at a certain point.
These are the Crash report-IDs:
but I’m not sure what “(upload requested by user, not yet uploaded)” means…
- How can I clear Braves cache w/o restarting the whole System (I mean the one which is set by Brave but cleared by Safe Boot)
- How can I nail down the issue?
- Is there a “Safe mode” as in FF where the Browser starts temporarily w/ extensions of and cache cleared?
I’d be grateful if you could shed some light into my darkness! I’d love to use Brave!
