Tabs Crash (Hard) When Using Emoji (Desktop) 2


I have 100% repro of Tabs Crash (Hard) When Using Emoji (Desktop) (but that topic has been archived).


Thanks for reaching out (again).
Just tested on my end and It does seem like Brave has something against the use of Twitter emojis but its inconsistent. I was able to both use emojis in a Tweet and reproduce the crashing tabs.

I was able to consistently use them with Shields down however. This is not a solution, but would you mind testing that for me on your end?


Unfortunately I can repro with shields down too :frowning_face:
Here’s what it looks like:


@dukedave, thanks for the recording - very helpful.
Can you try disabling Hardware Acceleration and see if that helps the issue? I kind of doubt it but it tends to fix some common-yet-specific problems like this.
Settings --> Advanced --> System --> Hardware Acceleration

I’ve also reached out to the team to see if this is reproducible across the board.


@Mattches that’s it!
With ‘Use hardware acceleration when available’ turned off and ‘Relaunch’ the issue goes away, (regardless of shields up or down).

I turned it back on, relaunched, and the issue started again.

Good :mag:!

Here’s this, if it helps:

$ sudo lshw -C display

Great news!
Glad to hear that worked. Sometimes it seems like Hardware Acceleration causes more problems than it fixes :sweat_smile:

I’ve marked this thread as solved and will close it now. Feel free to create a new topic if you need further assistance. Thanks!
