If the problem is not solved…let me know…or raise a request…
@rschilt I forgot to tell you something very important… the same problem is happening to me too! BUT, I noticed that when I activate an extension called REVERSO used for translation… guess what happened? The Brave icon appears in the system tray, in bottom right!
We need someone to check this for us @Chocoholic@Mattches. Is it a bug or not? Windows 11, latest Brave.
I think this is the intended behavior — icons appearing in this area (as I understand it) are active in some way, and not all extensions run/need to run in the background. Even if you have Brave set to Continue running background apps when Brave is closed, there may not actually be anything running which would explain why it appears when you enable certain extensions.
I have reached out to confirm that this is in fact the behavior.
Recently, Google upgraded their Chat / Hangouts feature to Meet (interestingly around the same time that the Brave icon disappeared from the system tray. Hangouts used a browser extension and this add-on used to run in the background. The new Meet is embedded in Gmail and no longer requires a separate add-on.
I now realise that “not seeing the Brave icon” in the system tray is normal behaviour when not running a “background” add-on.
Appreciate you taking the time to explain this to me.
