@obvious,
I’m unable to reproduce this on my end when testing on my Android device (Samsung S9+).
Let me ask around and see if I someone on the team has a comparable table to test against.

Given the image you provided, I’m assuming this happens for any site requesting to show you notifications?

Yes, any site that requests notifications.

I haven’t uninstalled / reinstalled yet in case diagnostics are required

@obvious,
There have been a few updates on Android since your initial issue, can you confirm that you’ve updated to the most recent Android release? Version 1.0.82 at the time of writing this.

Additional things to check:

  • Try visiting a site with a prompt, turning your your Shields down for the site, then proceeding and see if the prompt crashes the browser.
  • If you view [the site] in Desktop view, does the notification still crash the browser?

I have the same problem. I tried the fixes you mentioned above but no luck.

Still looking into this – appreciate your patience.
Does the browser freeze for any pop-up or permissions requests or is it specific to requests to send notifications?
