Cannot add new favorite top site

That was in a private DM and I think there were other issues involved that I do not care to discuss openly in the community forum.

Brave GitHub issue reports recently opened. No movement, but probably won’t be until after the weekend.

Thanks a lot for the advice!
To the developers: Is it possible to fix the function so that I can click with the mouse?

Thanks for this. It is indeed clunky, and I’m not at all certain why the original functionality no longer works. In my case, I was adding my “Google Calendar” and changed the name to be simply “Calendar”. One added point, as mentioned above, when editing the name, I found I was unable to save using the mouse. The dialog simply dismissed with no changes. So, more specifically, I had to tab over to the save button and hit enter.

Update: it appears on github that the issue is now closed and a browser update fixes the problem.

@dougp01 The cause is actually reported in a pull request at Brave GitHub. The fix is currently in Brave Nightly 1.42.x.

Resolves brave/brave-browser#23685, brave/brave-browser#23689

This fixes two issues with the add/edit site dialog:

  1. The dialog would show under the grid sites.
  2. The dialog would close when clicking on a field (because the click would be handled by the layer above it).

Screen recording of Top Sites dialogue working with mouse clicks on Brave Nightly version 1.42.39. First time in years I’ve used a screen recording tool. Be kind. :wink:


Off-topic information below but compelled to share. lol

I used a screen recording program linked in the Useful Screenshot and Screen Recording tools to capture on-screen behavior topic in the Help Center and Resources/Community Resources category. Super easy to use! I have avoided using screen recordings in topics before because of past, and very painful, experiences with various screen recording tools. This was a breeze. Nice share by Brave support staff. Thank-you! :smiley:

Screen Recording

(Windows, macOS)
Free, open source application used to capture and record screen activity. Many Brave employees use this due to its simplicity and quick production.

I found a possible workaround to this issue.
Rather than clicking the add button by mouse use tabs instead.
First enter the title, press tab, then write the url, press tab twice. The add button would be highlighted, then press enter.
