Description of the issue:
Debian Linux 10 on Thinkpad w/ integrated Intel graphics
Brave repo entry:
deb [arch=amd64] https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com/ buster main
using Xorg + window manager (jwm)
For the last few days (perhaps as long as a week). Brave will occasionally become completely unresponsive—cannot scroll or interact with buttons/menus, even keyboard shortcuts are ignored. Indeed, the mouse cursor no longer changes when moving over the address bar and the like. The rest of my system continues to behave normally save for the parts of my screen where dead brave windows cannot be moved or hidden. Brave must be forcibly quit (pkill) and restarted to be usable again. This has happened more than a dozen times. It has happened while I’ve been actively using Brave and I’ve also returned to my computer to find Brave already frozen in this way (having been normal when I last used it). I’ve seen one update go through while this issue has been happening, so if it was an update that precipitated the issue it will have been at least 2 updates ago.
How can this issue be reproduced?
- Open Brave browser
- use it for awhile (or just leave it sitting open)
Application remains usable
Brave Version( check
Version 1.38.115 Chromium: 101.0.4951.64 (Official Build) (64-bit)
First noticed this within the last week. I update manually via apt fairly regularly (every couple of days) so I can’t pinpoint the exact update when this issue began, but it was very recent.
