I have tried installing Chrome, Chromium, Brave, Opera and they all crash after a few secs. I have no idea what's causing this. The only web browser that still works for me is FireFox. Any help would be appreciated.

I'm running out of web browsers here lol

side note: I used terminal/apt to install the browsers for chrome/chromium and i downloaded opera off the website than opened it with software store install instead of snap.

edit:

Here's what the output in terminal when I launch Chrome from it.

  • Posting the output when you start the browser from a terminal would be more meaningful than your hardware. Those browsers are all based on Chrome/Chromium, so there might be a common component missing. – Sebastian Jan 17 at 18:30

I found an answer, but not really a solution. The forums here explained it well. It seems the antivirus I'm using is responsible for the crash. I can confirm that stopping the AV has allowed me to use all the web browsers without issue. In case anyone else has a similar problem I hope this will help you.

 Hi, I got into the same issue with Google Chrome 79 and Eset for Linux 4.0.93.0

Starting Chrome with --no-sandbox inline option fixes the issue. You get a warning by Chrome that disabling sandboxing may reduce stability and security, so this is not a permanent solution.

So the issue seems related to some incompatibility/conflict between Chrome sandboxing and Eset antivirus.
