Bug -- Windows 7 - White Screen on Launch - Brave (Version 0.58.18 Chromium: 71.0.3578.98 (Official Build) (64-bit))

Launching Brave.exe on Windows 7 displays only a WHITE WINDOW SCREEN.

  • No menus are available
  • Browser path is available

If Brave is launched with “–Disable-GPU” then it functions correctly. The machine that it is running on, is a ThinkPad T410s

Work-Around is:
Create a short-cut and include “Disable-GPU” in the Target path command.

A: the software can not be uninstalled. Yes, I deleted registry entries, UnInstall registry entries, file system entities. Tried to re-install and it fails with same WHITE SCREEN on launch

B: Brave Browser behaves badly, on only ONE of our identical test machines.
