Android edge swipe navigation

A recent update for Android added the “feature” that navigates forward/backward by single finger swiping at the edges of screen. Several websites are now broken for me because they use the same gesture to open site menus.
I absolutely hate this. A new feature was added, and I can’t turn it off. Can someone please help me disable this unwanted “feature”?

Hey frustrated_user,

I’d just like to confirm what Android you’re on before I go on.

Absolutely, here is a screen shot:

It is possible to disable this feature, but it is unfortunately exclusive to newer devices (10 or higher).

I don’t understand. The feature was added in a Brave update to my device. Are you saying I need to use an old version to remove the feature? Why can it only be disabled on a newer Android version?
