Brave doesn't switch focus of window when switching space

Description of the issue:
Sometimes, I need to restart Brave because it doesn’t switch the focus between multiple fullscreen spaces on MacOS. It gets stuck in 1 window, which means I have to click on other windows after switching to its space.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Have multiple apps in fullscreen
  2. Have multiplefull screen Brave windows
    3.Switch focus with control+arrow

Expected result:
The app should switch the focus of the window to the currently displayed window.

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Version 1.46.144 Chromium: 108.0.5359.128 (Offizieller Build) (arm64)

Additional Information:
OK it may be just a macOS issue, but it only affects Brave for some reason.

Hello there @Hannover69 please accept my apologies for this inconvenience. Please try disabling hardware acceleration on Brave to see if this works, to disable Hardware Acceleration through the macOS terminal. Follow the instructions below:

Open the Terminal and enter this command: open -a "Brave" --args --disable-gpu

Let me know if that works.


unfortunately, it occurred again even with Hardware acceleration off.

How do I enable it again?
