@Mattches, I’ll have to leave that up to someone else. I’m actually running Brave on Manjaro linux and haven’t had the problem myself. This was just a client’s Win10+Google Chrome computer I was working on last night and the same fix applied to another client’s Win10+Google Chrome that was having this exact same problem.
On the one hand, I would guess that the problem is rooted in Chromium. However, Google Chrome and Brave both seem to have suddenly been affected by it at the EXACT same time…ie yesterday. I wouldn’t expect both Google and Brave to have published updates at the exact same time.
So that makes me think it’s more related to perhaps some incompatibility between a recent Windows Update and some latent Chromium code.
HOWEVER, I can poke a hole in that theory too: One of the Win10+Google Chrome computers hasn’t had a Windows Update installed in well over a year. It’s blocked via WSUS from receiving any updates. Only Google Chrome would have updated. So I’m not sure what to blame here.
