Brave vs WordPress Gutenberg bug?

Description of the issue: When creating a new post or editing an existing post in WordPress 5.2.3-alpha-45552, only the top bar in Gutenberg (v6.1.1) is seen. One cannot edit the body text.

**Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary):

  1. Create a new post in Gutenberg.
  2. See the results instantly**

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):


Expected result: the entire Gutenberg editor should be seen.

Reproduces how often: every time on this version

Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu): Version 0.67.112 Chromium: 76.0.3809.62 (Official Build) beta (64-bit)

Reproducible on current live release (yes/no): don’t know

Additional Information:

@pivic can you share your shield setting (Brave icon at URL bar)? Maybe because “Device recognition” get blocked.

Hi, @eljuno! I’ve the shields off for my blog.

I’ve just double checked this, and the problem persists.

I’m currently using:

  • Brave Version 0.67.112 Chromium: 76.0.3809.62 (Official Build) beta (64-bit)
  • WordPress 5.2.3-alpha-45666
  • Gutenberg 6.1.1

I can also note that I’ve used Firefox 67.0.4 with the above WordPress and Gutenberg setup without any issue.

I must add that I’ve just updated to Gutenberg 6.2.0 with the exact same results as before: Brave doesn’t let me use Gutenberg while Safari and Firefox do.

For fun, I just installed Brave Nightly to Version 0.70.12 Chromium: 76.0.3809.72 (Official Build) nightly (64-bit), and Gutenberg doesn’t work there either, regardless whether shields are on or off.

I’m on mobile here always. Using a Pixel 3 XL which I run my websites from using Brave and WordPress. Gutenberg/WordPress Editor work, so I’m assuming it’s not a compatibility between the two, but another factor like your OS, etc.

Using the mobile version of Brave works for me as well, but this issue exists for the desktop-based version of Brave. In my case, I run Brave on macOS.

As I also previously pointed out, Gutenberg and WordPress work fine together in other web browsers on the same machine that I’m having problems with Brave on.
