Hi @supernes - thanks for reporting. Have you been able to load correctly since this report? Or does it continue to crash on opening?

After crashing a few times in a row, one of the attempts to launch succeeds and the browser is then stable. If I quit and try to launch again, it crashes a few consecutive times and then again randomly succeeds.

I’m getting the same crash on the same brave version with the same macOS version.

I tried turning it off and on again.

Same crash is present in Version 79.1.2.42 (102.42)

Hi @supernes - can you try launch from the terminal with Hardware Acceleration disabled? open -a "Brave-browser.app" --args --disable-gpu

If that doesn’t work, can you try the same but with Sync disabled? open -a "Brave-browser.app" --args --disable-brave-sync

Crashes with both args.
