Bookmarks bar - Only on New Tab Page - How?


So I recently installed Brave (Dev channel) and want to have the bookmarks bar only on the new tab page. Is that possible, if so how?
This is driving me nuts…

Thanks for reaching out! You can do this by going to Menu --> Settings --> Appearance --> Show Bookmarks bar and disabling this option.

Thank you @Mattches but then the bar is completely disabled.

I want the bar to be enabled on the new tab page, but disabled as soon as I navigate away.


This should be how the browser functions with this option disabled, as shown below:

Interesting, that’s indeed exactly how I want it, but unfortauntely when I disable that setting, it is also disabled on the new tab page. curious.

This seemed to work initially, but I’m seeing the same behavior now as @Votan. I don’t know what changed. I just updated to the newest version but am seeing the same behavior now.

@Mattches this is definitely how it used to work, however I’m now seeing the same behaviour as the others; the bar is either permanently off or on, even on new tab.

I’ve created an account just to report how annoying this is! :frowning_face:

Note: I am on the Stable build, not the Dev build

Note that we’ve already resolved this issue by including an additional option in Settings:

This option should be available in the next update to the browser.
