Hello all. I’ve been using brave for quite some time but just joined the community. So anyways, I am on a Mac Pro and running OS 10.13…at any rate, a few days ago Brave started crashing CONSTANTLY. It works for about 20 seconds then, BAM…crash. I have not changed ANY system or Brave settings and have not installed any new programs or changed any settings on any existing programs. I tried reinstalling Brave. It didn’t help so I "uninstalled it from my system, did a reset and then downloaded and installed it again. Same problem. I’m not having any problems with any other programs so I am stumped. Any suggestions?
Hi @geatoir1013, Welcome to Community!
What version of Brave are you on?
Can you try opening
Terminal and entering this command:
open -a "Brave browser.app" --args --disable-brave-sync
Does that change anything?
Can you also try disabling hardware acceleration by entering this command:
open -a "Brave browser.app" --args --disable-gpu
Thanks for the suggestions. Tried both solutions but either worked
When you uninstalled Brave, are you sure that you removed everything? Namely, the browsing information saved in:
If not, you may still have some “bad data” floating around in there causing the crash.
Thanks for the suggestion…I checked and there is NOTHING like that. No “lingering” files. Hmmmmm
No crashes…seems completely stable. Weird…and THANK YOU. HATE browsing with any other browser!!!
Currently, yes !
I didn’t expect any crash after installing the beta version for my windows pc from your link.
Do you have any idea, why aren’t we receiving any ads since a couple of days?
Glad to hear that’s working – the Beta browser should serve you well for now. I’ll be forwarding this information to the team for further review.
