Description of the issue:
How can this issue be reproduced?
- Open brave
- Attempt to access any website
- Get rejected
Bring up webpage
Brave Version( check
Brave version 1.29.81
When attempting to visit any website, I see a prompt that says:
This site can’t be reached
google.com’s DNS address could not be found. Diagnosing the problem.
nothing happens on this page, Hitting ‘Reload’ swiftly brings me back to that page.
I have tried changing DNS providers, I have cleared DNS cache, I have also reset my Brave settings and have no added extensions.
EDIT: everything works properly on Brave Beta version, but not the release version for me.
You’re not the only one. I have the same thing happen. Others have reported the same thing
problem still persists in version 1.30.87, but still has not appeared on the beta build
- Click on run/search, type “cmd”, right click "Run as admin"
Then run the following in the black window:
netsh int ip reset
netsh winsock reset
In the new Brave tab,
- type in
Brave://net-internals/#dns and press “Enter”
- Click on the
Clear Host Cache button to clear this cache.
- Locate and double click
Internet Options icon
Then Restart PC. and retest Brave.
Followed each step to a T, after restarting my PC there is still no change in the behavior of the release version of Brave browser, as before, Beta build still fully functional. I’m also assuming I was supposed to clear host cache for the standard release of brave, which I did, as opposed to the beta build.
Try a clean Brave profile.
by that do you mean reset settings? If so that has already been done as well.
No, new Brave profile.
- Use hamburger menu => Create a new Profile.
Or failing that, close Brave,
If it still occurs. I dunno.
just rename it to anything? the new profile did not solve the issue.
Rename to something like
Brave-Browser-bak so you can rename it back if you restore it.
That got Brave working, though I will also admit I have a bit of a tab problem, how would I go about restoring what I had on my original profile? even if there isn’t a way to do that I’m very grateful for the help so far, thank you.
remove the newer Brave folder created, then Rename the backup profile folder back too
Brave-Browser, While Brave is closed will restore it back remove
when restoring my issue returns, is there a file in the user data I should purge before opening Brave again or something else to prevent this?
