Description of the issue:
Brave is constantly crashing daily on startup regardless of running it as admin or not. This only started happening in the last month or two. I never had this issue with the old Brave.
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.
I love Brave but I’m going to have to revert back to Firefox if this issue can’t be resolved.
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
Browser flashes open on screen and automatically crashes within one second.
Restart browser and loads with all tabs missing and no way to retrieve them from history in recently closed section.
