I’m having the same problem. I’d like to uninstall the extensions, but trying to reach the settings or the extension screen also results in an aw shucks screen. Any way to deactivate them outside of the browser?
Edit: For clarification: I have no issues with Chrome.
Testing on my end, I’m able to browse normally using Win10 (latest updates applied) on Brave stable (v1.1.20). Can I ask if anyone is connected via VPN? Additionally, is there anything Brave-related quarantined or flagged in your Anti-virus software (for those of you who are running one)?
@Aelishdad@cneeper (and everyone else),
Would you be willing to try downloading/installing the Beta build of the browser and see if you get the same results? Note that installing the Beta will not overwrite or interfere with any data on your current installation so it’s risk free to test.
@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.
