Browser freezes when typing in address bar


I just installed Brave today (ver. 0.18.23), and everything is working fine except the browser freezes for a second or two every time I type something into the address/search bar. It always unfreezes and catches up to my typing, but it’s a bit annoying.

Has anybody else had this issue, and if so, is there a fix for it? Any help is appreciated. I’m running Win7 (64 bit).



Just bumping this as I’m having this issue as well. I’d really like to use Brave, but this little annoyance is keeping me from wanting to use it. I hope someone knows of a fix.


If it’s any consolation, this stopped happening for me after a day or so. I don’t know if there’s actually a fix, but I’m not experiencing this problem anymore.


Well, I guess that’s a bit of consolation, but honestly the fact it’s happening at all turns me off of trying to power through it so much that I end up just uninstalling and switching back to firefox because I know it works.


Hi, I also experience the issue. It is a bit annoying actually.
