Since updating to 0.18.14 I’ve noticed some odd behavior relating to the “Find on Page” feature (command F on Mac), which I use fairly extensively. I have not been able to reproduce the issue precisely, but have observed roughly the following:
- about half of the time I do a Command F and then type in a search string, things work fine
- about 25% of the time I do this, I get a Mac beach ball for a few seconds, and then the search works fine
- about 25% of the time I do this, I get a Mac beach ball that never recovers, and all brave tabs have become unresponsive. If I go to Force Quit, Brave shows as not responding, and I have to perform a Force Quit and restart the browser.
Often when I’m using the Find on Page feature, I’ve copied/pasted into the search string box, as opposed to typing.
Not sure if this is related, but I’ve also noticed some new occasional beach ball behavior (that usually clears itself within a few seconds) when copy/pasting within brave in general (i.e. not via the Find on Page feature). So I’m not sure if the issue is related to the Find on Page feature itself, or copying/pasting, or both.
