In Brave, ALT makes the menu bar visible until it is either pressed again or Brave loses focus.
However in Linux, ALT is a common hot key used for manipulating a window in conjunction with the mouse (moving, resizing, etc).
- configure Brave to hide the menu bar by default
- move window using ALT+left-click and drag
- notice that menu bar becomes visible after window move and ALT is released
I’ve made a recording of the issue, as instructed, but as a new user I am not allowed to upload it here. So, I’ll attach a link instead.
I would like to suggest that Brave’s behavior be changed so that ALT only makes the menu bar visible while it is pressed. Upon release of the ALT key, the menu bar would return to its hidden state.
