Hi @Robbrowserit, Welcome to Community!
Can you confirm if you’re on Windows 10?
Do you have any extensions installed?
Have you tried disabling hardware acceleration (brave://settings/system)?

Yes: windows 10 home
Yes: Bitwarden, DuckDuckgo Essentials, Evernote Web Clipper
No: I will and update the ticket shortly

Thank you for your attention to this problem.

All the best,


Update: Unfortunately, turning disabling hardware acceleration did not solve the crashing if I type and enter in the search bar of a private Brave window

Thanks for testing HA.
Can you try disabling your extensions 1 by 1 and see if that will resolve the private window crashing issues?

This is the extension causing the issue:
DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials. For now I will not add it to Brave.

FWIW, you may be able to keep the extension enabled, but disable it in Private Windows and it should prevent the crash (in theory):
