Importing from Firefox crashes Brave


I’ve just found Brave and initially it looks good. But when I try and import my bookmarks from Firefox, brave crashes.

Firefox is closed.
I have selected all 4 options to import.
The bookmark menu is active and visible.
When I tried just importing bookmarks, that seemed to work. I then tried to import cookies and it crashed. Upon restart, the imported bookmarks had gone.

I’m not sure what else to say.

Any thoughts?


Brave crash when import data from Mozilla

Thanks for reporting @AlanSh,

There’s an issue logged for this. Added your +1 to the issue


I don’t even get the courtesy of a crash, unless the app shutting down is considered a crash. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled Brave a couple of times and each time I attempt to import my FF data, the app simply shuts down … no message, nothing.


It’s already been reported.
