Description of the issue:
Browser crashes instantly after opening.
Steps to Reproduce:
Launch brave.exe in application directory, or via desktop shortcut.
Browser opens for a split second, appears as an all-white window, then closes instantly.
Browser will stay open when launched
Reproduces how often:
Anytime I attempt to launch the browser
Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):
Windows 10 22H2, OS Build 19045.3448
Brave 1.59.117 Chromium: 118.0.5993.70 (Official Build) (64-bit)
My browser is configured to pick up where I left off, so all of my tabs stay open across browser sessions; I have approximately 60 tabs open. However, I doubt this is due to a lack of available RAM, as I have 16 GB total, with only 60% in use whenever I try to launch the browser. This is about typical for me, and has never caused issues before.
If I right-click on the Brave icon on my taskbar, I can open a new incognito window, and it stays open with no issues. However, attempting to open a new “regular” window by right-clicking on the taskbar induces the same manner of crash.
I’ve already attempted to reinstall the browser (without removing browsing data), to no avail.
@DanielThePear hmm, when you say removed extensions, did you remove themes? Currently a known is as you can see discussed below. I’m wondering if that is what is going on with you or if it might be a similar yet different issue?
@DanielThePear So it’s possible that’s it. Essentially until they fix it, may have to disable vertical tabs, remove the theme, or use a secondary profile. They give instructions on all of that in the link I provided.
