Clear browsing data shortcut bug

Description of the issue: “Clear browsing data” shortcut (Shft+Ctrl+Del) does not bring up proper UI.

How can this issue be reproduced? Press Shft+Ctrl+Del --> which opens to top of settings page but no secondary splash UI to make selection.

Expected result: Settings page + splash UI to select categories to clear.

Additional Information: The same shortcut key combo works on current stable Version 1.5.115 Chromium: 80.0.3987.149 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional information:
I’m using macOS Mojave v 10.15.4 (19E266) and this bug started happening right after updating from 10.15.3. All of my OS X devices seem to be affected by this bug.

Also, when I navigate to “brave://settings/clearBrowserData” or use the appropriate shortcut, the “Clear browsing data” does seem to appear AFTER clicking on “Additional settings” option in the left hand side menu.


Hi @als, welcome to Community!

This is interesting. I can reproduce the issue on Nightly. On Release there is no issue.
Thank you for letting us know. I’ll pass it onto the team.


Yes, bug is in Nightly, not Release stable version.

This bug has been fixed on Nightly Version 1.8.48 Chromium: 81.0.4044.69 (Official Build) nightly (64-bit)

Thanks! :grinning: :+1:
