I am using the latest version of Brave on my Windows 10 laptop. Over the past week I keep getting the browser completely close down after I click on a search item to open it and today even when I scroll down a page. It’s become unusable now so I am sending this from Firefox. When it closes I open it again and a message tells me it didn’t close down properly and do I want to restore pages. I want to use Brave but no longer can until this is resolved. I’d appreciate any assistance.
Do you have any extensions installed in the browser at this time? Also, if you launch a Private window and browse normally, do you get the same result or does the browser stay open (or at least open for longer)?
I have Metamask and Privacy Badger extensions and have disabled Privacy Badger and tried it but get the same result. Opened a Private Window but before I get a chance to search, that shuts down too.
Just been back on, restored pages, and immediately closed You Tube, the last site I was looking at, and so far the browser has remained open.
Hmm, that seems to point to a specific action/site/item that is causing the browser to crash. You say that the last site you were looking at was Youtube – if you return to Youtube now, does it cause the browser to crash?
Yes, every time. I have just clicked on a link in an email to see a video and once the video started it crashed the browser again.
Can you try disabling
Hardware Acceleration in settings to see if this resolves the issue?
Settings --> Additional Settings --> System --> Hardware Acceleration
Out of curiosity, are you using nightly @danny1199 ?
If so, the forum post I’ve provided here goes more in depth:
However, if you are not on Nightly, is it on any other sites than youtube that it crashes?
I read your above reply in an email that I opened in Brave and every time I clicked on the github link you provided the browser shut down. I’m now replying via Firefox.
