This started to happen after I updated from 0.15.1 to 0.15.2


#9

Surprising I don’t see any webview crash on Windows 10 x64. @henryquan55 Could you try checking on a clean profile? I cant seem to get the crash on 0.15.1 or 0.15.2 both via upgrade and clean install.


#10

how do i run brave on a clean profile??

please advise me.

thanks!!!


#11

You can follow the steps here How to backup Bookmarks and settings. Once you back up launch brave which creates a new profile.


#12

I am getting the same thing and I am running version 18.14. I don’t have any malware on my machine I have run scans ect and Yahoo resolves correctly in firefox.


#13

Actually all I needed to do to correct this was clear my Brave Browsers cache.


#14

Cleaned cache…same issue

As Suguru mentioned please always make sure you have Brave up to date, keeps you safe online and helps get rid of annoying bugs the team fixes.

I’m having the same issue, webview crash on some sites and not others, sometimes it crashes even on certain pages on sites that work. Tried clearing the cache, has not worked. If it helps at all, had my computer blue screen last night because of an Nvidia error. Everything else seems to work fine though, it’s just brave crashing certain pages. I run windows 10.
