```Take your equation and to see things better replace Sqrt[1+3x^2] by a
symbols, say a:

In:=
-Sqrt[1+3x^2]/(1+Sqrt[1+3x^2]) +
Log[Exp[Sqrt[1+3x^2]]] - Sqrt[1+3x^2]Log[Exp[Sqrt[1+3x^2]]]/(1+Sqrt[
1+3x^2]) == 0/.Sqrt[1+3x^2]->a

Out=
-(a/(1 + a)) + Log[E^a] - (a*Log[E^a])/(1 + a) == 0

In:=
FullSimplify[%]

Out=
(-a + Log[E^a])/(1 + a) == 0

This reduces to Log[E^a]==a. This equation holds in a part of the
complex plane (including the real line) and is not valid elsewhere (e.g.
for a = 2Pi I). Not surprisingly Mathematica cannot combine this
information with the rest of your equations.
