Brave started crashing out of nowhere

Description of the issue: I was using Brave with CodeSandbox opened as an installed app. I was switching between those windows and Discord, when Brave crashed. I tried opening CodeSandbox but after 20 seconds it froze and crashed. Tried opening normal Brave, same thing. Restarted Windows, tried opening Brave, still crashes. Downloaded installer again, used it, and it keeps crashing. I would try reinstalling but i don’t want to reconfigure everything. Can I safely reinstall it without losing data? Or else, what can I do to try solving this problem?

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Open Brave.

Expected result: It opens and doesn’t crash afterwards.

Brave Version( check About Brave): 1.4.96

Additional Information: Windows 10 x64

@smixqse,

Can you try disabling Hardware Acceleration in settings to see if this resolves the issue?

You’ll find this in Settings --> Additional Settings --> System --> Hardware Acceleration
