Additional Information:

@Trace can you tell me more about your issue? Is the browser crashing after adjusting your country?

Hi Steeven;
The issue started after I got a pop up telling me to adjust to my country, which I did. After that adjustment (Canada) Brave filled my newsfeed with lots of channels that I had not chosen. When I push the customize button, the popup (looks different than before) pops up and then Brave shuts down) I have been using Brave as my main browser for over a year now. I have never experienced a problem like this.

So to re-cap. After choosing Canada as my country (because I got a pop up telling me to do so, I thought it might have something to do with Brave crypto rewards) My news feed independently filled with News sites not asked for. When I tried to use the customize button to remove sites I am not interested in, the pop-up window that looks different from the one I had prior to adjusting my country, opens and within a few seconds my entire Brave browser shuts down.
This has been going on for about a week, I guess. I have found no other issues while using the browser.

Thanks for looking into this.


HI @Trace - is this still an issue for you or have the latest updates helped? Thank you.

Hi Steeven;
I don’t get booted any more, but I can’t remove sites that I don’t want on my feed.
Thanks for responding.
