Description of the issue:
My compute will freeze. I’m not able to move the cursor using a mouse or the trackpad. Input via the keyboard has no affect either. To remedy the issue, I have to shut down the computer using the on/off button.
This issue seems to happen at random.
How can this issue be reproduced?
- Open Brave.
- Have one or more tabs open.
- Hover over one of the tabs. This is key. Every single time this issue has occurred, my cursor is hovering over a browser tab (one of the tabs above the URL bar).
Computer shouldn’t freeze.
Version 1.18.70 Chromium: 87.0.4280.101 (Official Build) (x86_64)
This happens randomly. I use Brave on a daily basis for multiple hours a day and this issue will happen every 1-2 weeks at most. That said, it’s been happening for over a year and with multiple versions of Brave. I actually stopped using Brave about a year ago because I couldn’t find anyone else with a similar issue. I recently decided to give Brave another try, figuring the issue was worked out in the updates to Brave since I stopped using it. Well, about a week into using Brave, the issue happened again. Then a week later it happened again and here I am.
I’ll also note that I’m using a Macbook Air that is on the latest macos update. To my knowledge, there are no other issues with the computer and no other program has triggered a freeze/crash like this.
