I noticed it last night at work when my Proton Mail App shit all over the bed.
Since I am kind of overdue for a new phone anyway, I thought maybe that was the culprit so I restarted it. A few times.
That didn’t fix it.
Every time I tried to open up a message in the Inbox the thing would shut down. It gave me an opportunity once to report the crash to Proton Mail so I did.
They sent a reply but you guessed it, I couldn’t open it to read it.
Then I noticed some of other Apps weren’t working either.
Gmail, Google Search, Defender, all kinds of things were crashing.
I’ll be damned if I can remember what I did, refreshed the apps or something but I finally got Proton Mail to work ONE TIME.
That was enough. I was able to read the reply from the tech guy at Proton Mail.
First thing he says is that it isn’t their fault.
Second thing he does is point a bony finger of fate straight at Google.

This is an Android problem and it’s not caused by us and it’s a Google bug from their WebView system component.

It didn’t for me right away, of course.
I couldn’t find this Android System WebView app they were talking about.
So I went and found it to install it, then it said I had it but I’ll be damned if I could find it so I installed it again, THEN I disabled the bastard.
Google says they fixed their fuck up.
I can’t prove that one way or another.
All I know is that this is what I finally had to do to fix the fucker.
Good luck and thanks a lot Google.
