Issues with logging into websites after most current update


I am running the Mac version of the Beta. I was trying to login to and, which I have done before with no issues, but the browser crashes whenever I hit login after entering my credentials. I tried turning the login shield off for those sites as well, with no change in the behavior.


Hi which version are you using? Could you please copy the contents of about:brave and send them? :slight_smile:

Thanks I created an issue for it here: :wink:

Could you please provide info on exact steps to reproduce and also test if it can reproduced consistantly? :slight_smile:

Also would you mind trying this step to see if it works to wipe whole browser?
!keep in mind that this removes all your saved settings, bookmarks and more!

For Mac Users :

  1. Delete the file from Applications (or whichever alternative location you have selected)
  2. Delete the folder located at “~/Library/Application Support/brave” (open and use the command ‘rm -rf ~/Library/Application\ Support/brave’)
  3. Restart computer
  4. Re-download the latest Brave installer from www.brave.com18
  5. Run the installer


@kefob Please update to the hotfix 0.16.9 and check if the issue is resolved.


The hotfix does seem to have resolved the issue.
