Custom Homepage non accessible in settings

Troubleshooting technical issues is much easier when both the user and support agent practice clear communication. For this reason, we have provided the template below for you to fill out with information about your issue. Please provide as much detail as possible so we can most efficiently resolve your problem.

Description of the issue:
When the toolbar is attached to the top instead of the bottom, the custom Homepage setting cannot be accessed. The setting for enabling toolbar to be attached to bottom must be ticked in order to adjust the settings for the homepage. See attached screenshot under controls. When the bottom toolbar is enabled, the setting for homepage is available. When the setting for bottom toolbar is not enabled, the setting for homepage is not available

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. In mobile version, specifically android, go to settings, appearance, and turn off enable bottom toolbar.
  2. Relaunch and go back to settings. You can no longer edit the homepage to be a custom url.

Expected result:

Hi @Keduncan3
Welcome to the Brave Community!
You can set a different home page by following the below steps

All the best!

See attached photos. There is a bug

have you installed the browser from any third-party websites other than the play store?

the current version of the browser is 1.22.71.

Using Brave Beta from play store. Version 1.24.55

oh! ok! Yup beta versions have some bugs!
but I have just installed the brave beta browser and It was working fine & also showing the homepage option!

Did you have the toolbar attached to the top or bottom? It works when the toolbar is on the bottom, it doesn’t appear when it is attached to the top
