Every try to open email links in Thunderbird closes Brave Browser.
Brave re-open asking to restore pages that were opened before.
Steps to Reproduce: it’s been a problem for weeks now. Reproduced hundred of times.
Cliking on Thunderbird email link closes Brave. Brave re-open and ask if I want to restore pages.
Until last updates, I had no problem at all. Brave was opening pages aside others that were there.
Reproduces everytime I click on a link now (at least a month if not about 6 weeks).
Only exception: if I change my favorite browser to firefox, there is no problem opening Thunderbird email links.
Then, If I return to Brave as my favorite browser, there is no problem opening Thunderbird email links, … Until I turn off the computer. When I’m back the next day, Brave closes and re-opens when clicking email links as before.
Operating System: Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
Brave Version: Version 1.37.116 Chromium: 100.0.4896.127 (Build officiel) (64 bits)
I do not have access to a Linux OS machine, but I have a note that says, you ought to be able to look at the Crash Reports:
My two cents of caution, for which you have not asked . . . are:
Never click on a link in an e-mail message, because of the high risk – that the link is not good. There have been plenty of “Phishing Expeditions” using such a link, that result in the un-expected and un-wanted thing being downloaded to a computer.
All that precaution aside, the handler / manager of the job (list of tasks) are roughly:
(1) Copy the URL address in the e-mail message
(2) Is the Default Internet browser running?
(3) If the Default Internet browser is not running, request that it be launched
(4) Is the Default Internet browser running?
(5) If the Default Internet browser is not running, repeat 2 times, steps (3) and (4); after those repeats, proceed to the next step:
(6) If the Default Internet browser is not running, Exit/Quit (/Crash?!)
(7) If the Default Internet browser is running, manage/request the Paste & Go of the URL address, using the Default Internet browser . . . and somewhere during that work, Succeed or Crash?!
Suggestion: In a Brave Browser > New Window, go to: brave://settings/getStarted
Re On startup, select “Open a specific page or set of pages”
Set the address to:
about:blank (notice the colon)
Thus, when Brave Browser launches, it has no immediate extra burden of going to some website.
Instead, Brave Browser is more ready to receive a command.
