Brave won't open


#1

I have Windows 10. Brave was working fine until yesterday and now it won’t open. I tried uninstalling, downloading and re-installing. It does not show up as running in the Task Manager either.


#2

Please post what version of Brave you are using from about:Brave.


#3

I can’t get the version from about:Brave if I can’t open it. I downloaded it yesterday, so it would be the latest version. The file size of the downloaded file is 116,502.


#4

I might have the same problem, also from yesterday : Brave won’t open when I click on the launcher.

Details :

  • Brave version : 0.18.36
  • Linux Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS 64bits
  • I only succeeded to open Brave with the command line, using the command “brave” as a root and here is what is diplayed :

How can I fix it and just have to click on the launcher to open Brave browser ?
Without using the command line ?
