Browser offsets when files are downloaded

Description of the issue:
I have noticed that when I download files through Brave, the window is offset and moves downwards.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.

  1. Go to (for downloading roms)
  2. Make sure that the browser is not in fully expanded
  3. Download a rom and save
  4. Browser will offset

Reproduces how often:
Every time a download is made

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):
MacOS Big Sur
Macbook air M1, V 11.4
Brave Version 1.28.106 Chromium: 92.0.4515.159 (Official Build) (arm64)

Thank you for reaching out. When I test this on my macOS system I do not see this behavior. The browser stays in place during and after the download.

I’m wondering if you have any extensions installed at this time?

Hi @Mattches, thanks for getting back to me.

This is very recent issue that has popped up in the last 3 weeks.
I disabled all my extensions if that might be the issue but it seems to persist.
Checked if my browser needed to be updated.
The issue persist with any download from various sites.
Lastly, I tested on safari and chrome if it it’s across browsers, only Brave is impacted.

Any suggestions on how this might be resolved?

Thanks :banana:

Is there any way you can try and get a short recording of the behavior as it appears on your end? Easiest way to do this is to use the macOS built-in screen recording functionality, upload the recording to, and share the imgur link here (it will automatically embed the video in the post).

Hi @Mattches

Here is short demonstration per request. (1)

Thank you for sharing the recording. I’ve reached out to the team about this to see what else might affect the sizing of the browser window in this way. Appreciate your patience.
