Infinite loop reloading with cookies disabled

Description of the issue:
I have this bug for 2 days at most where, on twitter, my page won’t stop reloading until I turn on cross-website cookies (Cookies intersites in french).

How can this issue be reproduced?
Just block cross-websites cookies on twitter

Expected result:
Page won’t stop reloading

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Version 0.68.138 Chromium: 77.0.3865.75 (Build officiel) (64 bits)

Additional Information:
I’m using Windows 10


I actually had the same issue. I just did a quick and dirty fix by rename the profile. I didn’t really investigate why it did it, I just wanted a working browser asap. You could try clearing the cache/cookies and disabling all the extensions to see if it helps?

Otherwise this is what did:

  1. Exit Brave (confirm by closing any Brave tasks in Task manager)
  2. Go into C:\Users<username>\AppData\Local\BraveSoftware
  3. rename the brave folder name ending with -bak
  4. Re-run Brave, this will setup the files/directorys. (check Twitter is okay here).
  5. Now close the Brave again.
  6. Copy over the following files from the -bak folder into your new brave folder
    Top Sites
    Login Data

You can try other files one-by-one see, copying them from your old -bak profile into your new profile.

I hope that helps.
