It looks like this issue was addressed here and on GitHub, but I’m still experiencing the same issue on my iPhone 11 Pro. My iPhone and the Brave app are both up to date and running the latest versions (14.6 and 1.27.1 ( I’m able to replicate the crash every time I try to long-press a favorite under the show more section of the home screen.

yes, this is fixed, we hope to release new build this week
