Reopen this thread. :smiley:

@Mattches, I believe that’s different issue with report from @bwave. He talked about bookmarks search box at Bookmarks Manager (Ctrl+Shif+O) that not working.

I can confirm this issue on my laptop. It not registered any letter that I typed. :slightly_smiling_face:

@eljuno, great catch! :clap: The github issue was strikingly similar, especially with the title :sweat_smile:

This is interesting since I cannot seem to reproduce this error on Windows or Linux - Bookmarks search in manager works just fine. I’ll dig around some more and see what I can find if anything. If not I’ll submit a new issue on github.

@Mattches @eljuno thanx a lot, I hope this gets attention now

@Mattches I added a record of this issue. LICEcap not catch it correctly, but you should see the issue.

After searching existing issue, now I remember some users report similar issue in the past. Like Bookmark search field does not work that lead to https://github.com/brave/browser-laptop/issues/13322. The issue closed as fixed, but it seems it’s not fixed for some users. :smile:

And more reports:

Thank you @eljuno for the information. With ubuntu 16.04 LTS I can confirm the same error (gif picture) like from @Mattches.
The Brave install was via information from the brave website via terminal install around 12.2017:
deb [arch=amd64] https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/brave-apt xenial main

I setup now new my pc and installed ubuntu 18.04 LTS.
I took now the Brave snap directly from the Ubuntu Software center.
With the Brave snap install at ubuntu 18.04 works Brave with the “Search bookmarks” function fine.

Only maybe a suspicion:
Difference gnome terminal ubuntu 18.04 to 16.04 for script bash background processes:

Option “-e” is deprecated and might be removed in a later version of gnome-terminal.#
