I let a QA team member know about your issue.

@gibson do you have any STR? I basically just tried the following and couldn’t reproduce the original crash that we fixed via

STR/Cases used:

  • launch 1.29.81 Chromium: 93.0.4577.82 which is the latest release
  • visit brave://settings/content/autoplay via the URL
  • visit brave://settings/content/siteDetails? via the URL

Used the following MBP:

OS: macOS Version 11.5.2 (Build 20G95)

I tried it on Win 10 x64 as well just in case and couldn’t reproduce. If you can provide us with some STR/Cases, we’ll try reproducing/fixing. Could you go into brave://crashes and see if there’s any recent entries in there? If there’s crash reports, mind sending them and sharing the Uploaded crash report ID?
