I’m using a fully updated Brave, in Xubuntu 18.04. I have been getting the error for 2 weeks now (more or less), but the issue started immediately after an updates. Thelatest update (earlier today) did not fix the issue.
“You are using an unsupported command-line flag: -no sandbox. Stability and security will suffer.”
Brave is pretty stupid in this mode and even uses Google search despite the fact that my computer is (proudly) google free by explicit command to use duckduckgo.
I know it’s in development, THIS IS NOT A COMPLAINT.
But, if this problem can’t be fixed, how do I remove Brave and all it’s related configuration files so I can try reinstalling from scratch. After the 10th time loosing bookmarks, I gave up trying to personalize it, so an uninstall for me wouldn’t involve any backup of personal data or configuration related files.
A search engine inquiry seems to indicate Brave has no uninstaller and that sudo apt-get remove --purge Brave DOES NOT WORK because it wasn’t installed using the apt command.
Since this is a feedback forum, I’d like to include mine-even though it has no relation to this thread specifically.
I’d like to see Brave combat the Basic and Fundamental problem with browser privacy, which is lack of countermeasures to prevent or minimize the use of active content to harvest personal information from my computer…and combating forever cookies that just cannot be removed. To the best of my knowledge, Brave does nothing-so websites we use can harvest personal information and take the funds we give them::>
