Address bar focus problem



After minimizing and restoring Brave, the focus appears to be in the address bar. Typing characters works, but control characters like backspace, enter, arrow keys etc does nothing.

How to reproduce:

  • Open a new tab and click in the address bar.
  • Minimize Brave.
  • Restore Brave again and verify that the cursor is still in the address bar.
  • Type the beginning of a URL and verify that it works.
  • Try to erase characters by using Backspace. This does not work. Alt/D selects the address bar content but the control characters are still non-functional.

Brave version: Version 0.60.5 Chromium: 72.0.3626.28 (Official Build) dev (64-bit)
Operating system: Windows 7 Professional SP1.


Just tested on my end and you’re absolutely correct. Good catch, sorry for the late response. Will log this issue right now.
