I do have frequent crashes as soon as I try to select a subset of fields to be joined via layer properties / joins / joined fields checkboxes. joins of the same pair of tables without limiting fields according to my specific selection work well. crashes did also occur after specifying custom field name prefixes within the join dialog. both test were done with the target table opened.
My tests covered XLSX files and CSV files so far. I have been observing this problem unsing several versions (from 3.20 to 3.24) - right now I am on QGIS 3.24.0. is there anything I could do in order to avoid these crashes - any known workaround so FAR?
QGIS issues list at github doesn't show any corresponding results on the keywords 'join' 'crash' 'field' - so I am not sure whether or not I am the only one with that kind of problem.
