Browser keeps crashing after few minutes opened

After latest browser updating available ( [Version 1.1.20 Chromium: 79.0.3945.74 (Official Build) (64-bit)) on my Linux Ubuntu Budgie 19.04, it keeps crashing after few minutes opened. I notice also some “flickering” effect in the page before browser crashes.

Seeing the same thing on Linux MInt 19.3 (beta). Constant flickering and Brave crashes every couple of minutes. I’ve had to roll back to 1.0.1 and put Brave on hold.

Just updated today to Version 1.1.21 Chromium: 79.0.3945.79 (Official Build) (64-bit). Issue still remains though.

I was reading other topics about extensions or VPN that could be the cause so i Tried myself… I had 2 extensions, i removed them all and NORDVPN as VPN but deactivated and for information, the issue still remains…

I’ve just updated to [Version 1.1.22 Chromium: 79.0.3945.79 (Official Build) (64-bit)] and am still seeing this issue.

The flickering has lessened, but the browser still crashes within 2 minutes. It crashed again while writing this reply so I’ve had to downgrade back to 1.0.1 again.

I’ve tried disabling the three addons I use (KeepassXC, Privacy Badger and Keepa) to no effect.

I’ve seen a few other threads related to Brave crashing and have also now tried disabling sync and Brave Rewards. Sadly neither of these resolved the issue and the only ‘current’ solution is to stay on 1.0.1 which does not have the issue, but is only a temporary solution.

A proper fix for these crashes, that do appear to be affecting multiple people over multiple threads, is required.

Yeah, same for me ;/

@JimmyOlsen @infidelus,
Can you try disabling Hardware Acceleration in settings to see if this resolves the issue?

You’ll find this in Settings --> Additional Settings --> System --> Hardware Acceleration

@Mattches, hi. The issue still remains… :thinking:

Same issue here. 1.4.25 keeps crashing on random websites either from typing them or just clicking thru a duckduckgo search.

Disabled hardware acceleration. Problem still persists unfortunately. Brave crashed within a minute of opening.

Can everyone here experiencing these crashes either:

  • Ensure that you turn on automatic crash reporting for our devs to receive.
  • Go to Brave://crashes and send them manually (using link under the crash ID), or copy/paste your crash reports here in Community

Same here… too Brave version Version 1.1.23 Chromium: 79.0.3945.88 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Ubuntu version: 19.04

Just a mini update from me. I’ve just done a complete reinstall to try Ubuntu Cinnamon Edition and this problem persists.

It’s actually got to the point now that I’m ditching Brave for the time being as it’s completely unusable in its current state.

It does NOT, and you guys should stop suggesting that it does.

Just for info: Issue still there even after get installed today latest version (Version 1.2.41 Chromium: 79.0.3945.88 (Official Build) (64-bit)

@JimmyOlsen Hi, I think you might have an outdated version or use another version of Brave. We’ve been talking about Brave nightly and as for writing this the latest version of that is 1.5.13 in which the issue has been resolved.

@Ladrason, hi… I have uninstalled my stable and then installed the nightly one. Issue still there for me, unfortunately… :thinking:
