Bug - merging a tab from one brave window to another causes all instances to crash

Description of the issue:
All instances of brave are crashing if we attempt to move a single windoed tab to another brave window arleady containing a tab

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary):

  1. Lauch Brave
  2. create two new tabs
  3. take one of the tab and pull it as another Brave window
  4. attempt to merge the independent tab to the first brave window
    Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
    All brave browser instances crashes
    The chrome_crash_pad process is also killed

Expected R esult:
The tab should be collated alongside the target window tabs
Brave should not crash

Reproduces how often:

Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):
Brave release - v
Version 1.31.87 Chromium: 95.0.4638.54 (Official Build) (x86_64)

Reproducible on current live release (yes/no):

Additional information:
I’m using macOS Big Sur v 11.6


I’m having the same issue. When I make a new tab and try to drag it to a another window or make it into a new window it freezes Brave. Then when I hit something on my keyboard it unfreezes but the tab goes back to where it was. I am using Windows 10 so it clearly isn’t just an OS issue as OP is using macOS.

Brave version: Version 1.31.88 Chromium: 95.0.4638.69 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Windows 20 Pro - Version 20H1 - Build 19043.1288

The issue seemed to fix itself after about an hour. No idea what I did that fixed it if anything, just randomly seemed to start working again

This bug just started for me as well. Very annoying. Having to “create new window” to be able to have a new tab where I want it is getting old.

Same reproduce steps as OP.

Brave Version 1.31.88 Chromium: 95.0.4638.69
Windows 10 Pro - Version 20H2 - Build 19042.1288

Having the same issue. I often use Brave windows side by side, and if I drag tab from one window to the other, I get a red screen and Brave crashes. It does not appear to happen when using Chrome (Brave being chromium based, thought this bit would be useful).

Using Brave: Version 1.30.89 Chromium: 94.0.4606.81 (Official Build) (x86_64)
OS: MacOS 11.6 on 27" 2017 iMac. Happens on my MacBook Air too.

Saw I was on an older version of Brave browser. Updated, and it appears to be working right now… I’ll report back if I can reproduce it.
Now on Version 1.32.106 Chromium: 96.0.4664.45 (Official Build) (x86_64)
