Brave changes black theme color

Description of the issue:
Whenever I select “Brave Colour” to black it makes the top part of the search bar and tabs a dark blue, when I set it to white it’s white, and when I set it to Same as Windows and have a black theme on my windows it makes it dark blue, but when I have a white theme on my windows it makes it white. Basically brave just makes the search bar and tab bar blue whenever it’s a dark theme.
How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. No idea

Expected result:
It should be a dark gray
Brave Version( check About Brave):
Version 1.19.86 Chromium: 88.0.4324.96 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Additional Information:

Whenever I go to google themes the option under Brave Colours and select a dark theme it tends to work and actually make the search bar and tabs black, but I don’t really like that one and I rather just resolve the issue incase it happens again.



Same for me.

The the old dark theme was better.

I think this is the new ”Dark theme”, with a little bit of blue in it :))
Personally, I like it

then it should be a separate mode called Night


Or maybe something that allows you to change to any colour :))

This was bothering me so. much. I thought there was something wrong with my monitors. Not sure how I feel about the blue tint–all of the other ‘dark mode’ apps/themes I use are shades of pure grey on spectrum from black to white. I’ll get used to it, but the difference is pretty jarring.

enjoy, at least you won’t have to hang yourself with this irritating dark blue


Have the same problem.
Private windows color was changed as well.
Want the old colors back, this is not “dark” enough.

there are a few on chrome site…like midnight mentioned above or one called Dark-10, or go to Deviantart website and there many chrome browser themes…heres mine it changes the icon colors and min/max/close buttons as well…

whats the name of that one it looks rly good

heres the link, it works on any chromium browser…

I agree. The old dark mode colors matched the rest of my theme perfectly, not to mention it blended right in with DarkReader. Now with this blue tone, it sticks out like a sore thumb. Please bring back the old dark mode colors and make this new one a separate theme.

I prefer the new color. The old grey is flat and ugly by comparison, imo. But to each their own. If they’re going to change it back I just wish they would at least release the new color as a theme so people who liked it could keep it.

Thing is, I don’t think people who do like it would comment as much about it, so they’re probably underrepresented. People who don’t like something are much more likely to speak up about it.

I just recently found this theme that looks exactly like the old Brave dark theme
