@kingsven149,
Can this issue be reproduced in the stable version of the browser application?

Yes it can. In the stable version there is the same problem.

@kingsven149,
Thank you – trying to see if I can reproduce this myself. Will return when I know more.

Cant repro on release/beta/nightly. Does this happen for all links or specific sites? Also do you have open custom tabs disabled? If its disabled try enabling it and see if it fixes the issue. Option should be under controls in settnigs

For all links. But when I try a link for the second time it will always work.
Yes I have this setting enabled.

I have this issue, too. I use a Pixel 3XL running Android 11.

I thought it was a Chrome related issue in which Chrome was trying to be the default browser. I have uninstalled and deactivated Chrome (repeatedly as it re-enables itself) but the crashing still happens.

I saw online about Google AMP sites were causing it, so I tried setting Bing as my default browser but this still didn’t fix the crashing.

I’m glad I’m not alone with this crashing issue. It’s infuriating.

Can you guys check if custom tabs option is enabled or disabled in settings?

This problem is the same, with custom tabs enabled or disabled.

I’ve turned custom tabs off. Will let you know.
