it’s an old issue that seemed to be fixxed and then started happening again … -_-
I have updated the previous poster points since the old topic is locked but the situation is 100% the same!
Brave is constantly crashing daily on startup regardless of running it as admin or not.
Essentially what happens is if the browser gets shut down, and you proceed to try and relaunch it, you get a flash of the browser on the screen (literally a white screen because it happens so fast it doesn’t have time to load a webpage although you do see the Brave icon show up temporarily down on the taskbar below) and then it’s gone and automatically shuts down. Then when you relaunch a second time it always loads the browser BUT EVERY TAB YOU HAD OPEN IS NOW GONE.
The most frustrating part is typically in the past when an error occurs with the browser, or say a power outage occurs and you have to restart Windows, you could always click on History and there would be an option under “Recently Closed” that would say for instance “32 tabs”. You could click on the “32 tabs” and all of your tabs would reload. With this recent type of crash that is now occurring your tabs are just completely lost. There is no way to get them back. You literally have to load them one by one by one through your history and it’s a complete waste of my time.
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
(keep in mind it happens about 1 time out of 10 but it’s still too frequent)
- Shut down windows with browser open (I use about 15-20 tabs at once)
- Boot up OS
- Start the browser
- browser flashes open on screen and automatically closes under one second.
- Restart browser and loads with all tabs missing and no way to retrieve them from history in recently closed section.
Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
Fix this issue.
