Brave settings navigation bar problem

Description of the issue:

When I am opening settings in Brave, while my screen is split between two windows, the navigation sidebar disappears and it seems like the only available settings are those under “Get started” section, with no indication that there is anything else. Screen that I’m using is 1920x1200 and when it occurs zoom is at 100%, when I change it to 90% list appears again.
While it’s easily fixable by changing zoom or resizing window, it may be a nuisance for some people, so it’d be nice if navigation bar changed to hiding list on the left when settings are opened in small window, or had a clickable tab to show it.

Otherwise had no problems, great browser overall, and thank you for your time reading this.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. On a 1920 x 1200 screen, open two brave windows in 50/50 ratio, and go to either window, then open browser settings

Expected result:

Of above actions? Settings screen contains only top bar with icons for settings, rewards, history, bookmarks, downloads and wallet and beneath only “Get started” section of the settings appears, for new user (just started using brave on desktop myself) this looks like these are the only available settings there.

Brave Version:

Version 1.56.14 Chromium: 115.0.5790.114 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Thank you for the report.

I’m going to have to fiddle with my screen settings for a minute so I can try to test this and see if I can reproduce. To clarify, you’re saying that both browser windows show only the icons and Get started section?

Yes, if the split is a vertical 50/50, neither settings screen shows navigation sidebar, only the top panel and “Get started” section. I myself learned there are more settings by typing into a search bar. Because I’m using my screen in split 99% of the time, it didn’t even occur to me that could be the problem, but I thought there is no way that I can’t change the spellcheck settings anywhere. When I found out that there were in fact spellcheck settings, I maximized the window and learned that there is a navigation sidebar that was not showing before.
