I enabled the “Show bookmarks bar” option in Settings, then I changed my mind and disabled it, yet the bookmarks bar remains there, even though the “Show bookmarks bar” option is disabled. I toggled the option many times, quit Brave, restarted my computer (Mac), but the problem persists.
It would be better if you can include your Brave version, OS, screenshot or record of the issue. This kind of information is “requested” everytime you try to create a new thread – in the guidelines.
Did the bookmarks bat only appears on new tab page? But then disappeared after you visit site?
You can try “Ctrl + shift + B” to hide and un-hide bookmarks bar.
Bookmarks bar shown on new tab page is a known issue. We’ve an issue logged for that.
