Two issues, maybe related: Closing random tab closes browser and Tumblr crashes browser


Issue 1:
After the last update Brave randomly closes when I close a random tab. So this time, as I am typing this, the entire browser closes if I close my Twitter tab. Last night it was a WIki page that shut the whole browser down, but I could close Twitter, so it does seem to be random.

Issue 2:
Every time I log into Tumblr the entire browser shuts down when I am finished typing my password and hit Enter.


@Captain_Snailbeard we just hotfixed issue #2. If you could update to 0.16.9 and confirm, I’d be much obliged.

Issue 1 sounds more like a crash. We’ve fixed a few underlying issues with the hotfix, but some details on your system and steps to reproduce might be helpful.

Please review our posting guidelines, in particular, section 6:

Before you post!

**1.**It is important that you have the right expectations for free technical support for free open source software.

For an average business day you should expect about 24 hours before your first response. For the weekend (any post after 3PM PST Friday to 11AM PST Monday) expect about 48 hours before your first response.
We totally love you, but we also have loved ones, pets, and stuffed animals we like to spend time with when we’re not making free software.

**2.**Did you check out our Common Issues?

Clicking on that Lion in the upper-right corner and fiddling with settings is going to solve like 99% of your problems.

**3.**Is a specific site not working? If is not working and you’ve tried step 2, you have a Web Compatibility issue. Post here instead :

**4.**On the Internet nobody knows if you are being funny/sarcastic/rude. Smileys go a long way, but it’s better if you stick to the facts and say ‘please’ and ‘thank you’. Don’t swear in text, it’s a waste of everyone’s energy.

**5.**Have you tried this in other browsers? Be sure to check it’s not just Brave.

**6.**Help us help you. This is how we expect you to write a post:
A. Make a meaningful title. “Clicking on the Done button 3 times crashes Brave” is much better than “Brave suddenly crashed”.
B. A screenshot or recording of the issue (Licecap is totally free to use
C. A listing of:
i. Your Operating System and version (Mac 10.11.x, Windows 7/8/10, Linux distribution, iOS 9/10, Android)
ii. Your Brave Version. (Desktop users please copy info from about:brave using the clipboard if possible)
D. Detailed step-by-step instructions of how you came across the issue.
i. I downloaded and installed Brave.
ii. I created a bookmark and clicked the ‘Done’ button three times.
iii. Brave suddenly quit and my bookmark was not created.
E. Count to 20 and re-read your post. Could someone take offense at your post? Could you say something a bit more clearly?

**7.**Sit tight. Like we mentioned above, you should have no expectation of instant replies.

**8.**If you do not follow the guidelines above, expect to have your post edited or deleted. We’re not trying to be rude, we just don’t want to waste energy when we could be releasing new features and bug fixes.

**9.**Thanks for slowing down to read this. Use the template in step 6 and you can delete the rest.


I am already using version 0.16.9 and it crashes Tumblr.


Oh and I forgot:
This means the problem with Tumblr STARTED with that hotfix for me. And the random closing of the program, as well.

I cannot “reproduce” it, or rather I cannot NOT reproduce it. As I said there is no specific page that causes it. As of right now it is the tab that contains this very forum that crashes the entire Brave browser if I try to close it.


@Captain_Snailbeard Could you try backing up your profile by following the steps mentioned here. And then create a new profile on 0.16.9 and check if the issue happens on the same Tumblr forum?


Okay… Tumblr spontaneously started to work the second time I restarted my computer that day. No update made in the browser nor any action taken by me. I consider this solved.

The tabs still do close the whole browser down but I have found a pattern: It’s a tab where all content has not loaded yet. If I just wait until every content on the page has loaded, I can close the tab without it shutting down the whole program.
