Can't open bookmark with side-button on mouse


#1

Description of the issue:

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary):

  1. Start Brave Browser
  2. Use side-button (normal function: “open link in new tab”) on a bookmark
  3. Notice that the bookmark doesn’t open

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
Nothing happens.

Expected result:
The bookmark (or bookmarks folder) should open the link (or links) in a new tab (or tabs) like it did in the previous stable build of Brave

Reproduces how often:
100%

Brave Version(about:brave):
Version 0.58.16 Chromium: 71.0.3578.98 (Official Build) (64-bit)
P.S. The new about link is chrome://settings/help

Reproducible on current live release (yes/no):
yes

Additional Information:
This worked in the previous stable build. If I pressed the side-button on my mouse, the link behind the bookmark would open in a new tab. If it was a folder, all links would open in new tabs. The functionality of the buttons is unchanged when used on a page. So when I click on a link on a page with one of those buttons, it opens said link in a new tab.

If anyone is wondering what those “side buttons” are, see this image (the buttons with the small arrows):

Hello Robbert,
Did you ever find a fix for the ‘Bookmark’ sidebar menu
not opening? I am now having a similar problem on the newest
version of Brave/Chromium. My mouse is a generic wired
mouse. The sidebar menu with now only work intermittently.
I have to click on the side browser icon multiple times to
get it to ‘pop’ out. I thought it may be my graphics (generic
Windows 10 driver) causing it but after playing with it for
a while it is still glitching. Any Thoughts?
