For me, this has been a long-running problem with Brave on both Linux Mint 18.1 “Serena” MATE 64-bit (plus going back a few versions including 18.0 with Cinnamon) and Windows 7 64-bit. I thought it would be resolved after I got past some other problems I had with Brave (long story), but I guess not.
In the case shown in the screenshot below, I did not even get to a third page before it went into white-out mode. I brought up Brave which starts with the Brave home page, clicked on the ABC News link in my Bookmarks bar, and then opened up several stories. After the ABC News home page, all of the tabs came up white where there should be content.
Once things reach this point, no other page will come up and display its content. Not even the About Brave page will display right now for me to show I am running the most recent version.
I find this very interesting as one cannot highlight any “hidden” text yet I could plainly hear the sound from the auto-play video ABC News had in the first tab. In this state, nothing will get pages to fully appear other than closing Brave and restarting it. In fact, in most cases, I have to reboot my computer to get Brave to display properly again.
As for how long it takes to happen, it’s normally whenever I start opening up multiple tabs…not good for me as that’s how I normally browse. I have tried various combinations of settings but, over the many months I have kept trying each Brave update, nothing has ever fixed this white-out problem on either Linux Mint or Windows.
As for websites, it’s not just ABC News or others that have a lot of dynamic content. From what I can recall, it has happened when opening up multiple tabs from Facebook, StartPage, and even my own website running WordPress.
Obviously, this has to be addressed before I can ever seriously use Brave. I will be glad to provide any information from either of my computers to assist in finally ending this intolerable problem.
