Brave Browser Border-Radius Causes Invisible Content

Description of the issue: Unable to see content on websites or browser <input> or <textarea> or <video> or <a> that has a border-radius.

There may be more variables to the problem. Turning off Brave shields and disabling all my installed Brave browser extensions did not help.

How can this issue be reproduced?

Expected result:

Thank you for reaching out to us.
I cannot reproduce the issues you’re describing above — in all the examples the page(s) behave exactly as intended (also on macOS, with Brave v1.52.122).

Can you tell me if you see the same behavior using a fresh browser profile?

I do not know. I like the idea. I can not test it now.

I had an opportunity to update Brave.

The update and restart resolved the problems.

But, thanks for the suggestion.
