I’m using Brave version 1.1.23 in Kubuntu Linux 18.04 LTS. In the last several weeks, every time I open Brave, the screen blinks intermittently and then Brave closes on its own after a few minutes. I have cleared cookies and cached images, and disabled hardware acceleration, but these measures haven’t helped.
I have only recently started to use Brave more regularly, so I don’t have a good read on the issue, but I think it’s been going on since around Brave version 1.1.20. Browsing around the Brave Community forum, I see that several other people have reported the same or a similar problem. Therefore my question is: pending resolution of the issue, Brave is unusable. How do I revert to version 1.0?
The same problem occurs in Chromium (version 79.0.3945.79), but not in Firefox.
Please note: I am fairly new to Linux, so the more detail provided in the instructions the more helpful they will be.
