Description of the issue:
Google Search Don’t work on Brave Browser Nightly Android
How can this issue be reproduced?
- Open Google.com

- See the error
See the results of the search
Brave Version( check
1.41.57 Chromium: 103.0.5060.42 (Build oficial) canary (32 bits)
Mobile Device details
The FIRST screenshot is good: a valid Google Search result for search criteria ‘cloudflare’ . . . but:
Translation for the SECOND screenshot - thanks to ‘deepl.com’
An error occurred when the web page was displayed.
If the message appears frequently, try these suggestions (link undetermined because of screenshot).
From the 1st screenshot it automatically passes to the 2nd screenshot in milliseconds
I have the same results.
The successful search page will show briefly, immediately followed by an error page, regardless of what phrase is searched
This is true if the search/address bar is used AND if I navigate to google.com and then search for something
I’m not seeing this error when testing on my end (Nightly using Galaxy S22) — Google searches seem work as intended. Can anyone here encountering this check and see:
- If the issue occurs when using a Private browsing window?
- If the issue occurs if you turn Shields down for Google.com?
- If the issue occurs if you’re not signed into Google at the time you perform the search (test this in a standard window)?
Checked Nightly on my s10e running Android 12. No issues. Also tried a private window. Again, no issues. Tested with shields up and down.
Yes, the issue occurs in a Private browsing window. The cell phone does not allow me to take a screenshot in a private window.
Turning Off Shields - Same situation
Sign-Out Google Account - Same Situation
It is very strange because it only happens in the Nightly version for Android
Nightly is the most likely build to have errors and issues so things like this are expected. Can you try clearing your cache and site data and test to see if this resolves the issue?
I did this
Well, it’s not something very necessary
It is only to report this issue
Thank you — I will let the team know about this issue and take a look if necessary.
Can you try disabling Vulkan,
brave://flags/#enable-vulkan then restarting the browser @cmam @Herrvader @ccraighead
I have the same issue. I had to change Google as the search engine to another to make it work.
Which means it’s something between google and brave nightly app
Does Brave Beta work? or in Brave release (if you Clear browsing data, then exit Brave/restart)
No issues on my end. Was just posting that mine was working with the device and android version I was using. In case it was helpful I suppose…
The issue only happens in Nightly for Android.
Release and Beta versions (Android) work fine.
And Nightly/Beta/Release/Dev for windows windows 11 work fine too.
Yes. I already tried to clear browser data and restart the phone.
I can confirm this. I made a post about this in the noon. Having the same issue. Google search just crashes. .50 didnt had this problem. .62 does.
Which phone and android version are you using? @cmam
Also having the same issue with Brave Nightly. Have tried reinstalling the app, clearing cache, cookies, etc.
Version 1.41.62, Chromium 103.0.5060.42
