Closed windows (including private ones) show up in uBar window list

Just repositing a serious privacy issue that has been around since at least 2018 but systematically ignored:

When using the “uBar” dock replacement ( on macOS, closed windows remain in uBar’s window list after they are closed. This is just an annnoyance for normal windows, but a serious leak for incognito windows.

It might sound like a uBar bug, but no other browsers or other multiwindow apps have this problem with uBar - only brave, so there must be something brave does differently than everybody else.

I’m guessing it is missing some kind of event on window close.

All the standard questions are already answered in the previous auto-closed reports:

I find it strange that issues are auto-closed while waiting for brave to follow up. It’s like pretending problems go away if you just ignore them.
