(2) Open the document

@pbarry25 thanks a bunch for reporting. Just to confirm, you’re also experiencing this with Chrome?


Hi Steeven!

Correct, I’m seeing this with both Chrome and Brave on macOS 12.6.3 (Intel platform).


Thanks for reaching out.
It looks like you’re correct and that this issue is due to a bug in the underlying Chromium engine. This will likely get resolved during the next Chromium bump — that said I will forward this information to our devs to review either way but yeah likely an upstream fix here.


Awesome, sounds good, Mattches. Big thanks to you and the Brave team for being so responsive to my post, really appreciate y’all!
