Dear Brave Users,
A recent issue with Brave’s ad-block list distribution infrastructure caused a small number of users to experience out-of-memory related freezes on startup. The issue has been resolved, but affected users may need to manually remove older data files from their profile directory.
To manually remove and re-download the affected component:
Close all Brave instances
Locate your user data directory
For Windows users:
For macOS users:
For Linux users:
cffkpbalmllkdoenhmdmpbkajipdjfamdirectory – this is the affected component – and delete it.
After the component directory is removed, simply relaunch the browser and the newer component version will be downloaded automatically.
