Developer sidebar popping up on its own

Description of the issue:
How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. As I’m typing on any website I’ll intermittently get this developer sidebar popup when I press the “tab,” “shift,” “s,” or the “i” keys.

Expected result:
To resume normal browsing activities without activating the sidebar with a keystroke.

Brave Version( check About Brave):

Version 1.31.88 Chromium: 95.0.4638.69 (Official Build) (x86_64)

Additional Information:

I disabled developer menu in the settings. I also checked my extensions and no extension triggers this event. Here’s a screenshot of the sidebar.

I also want to note that I had this same issue before wiping out the OS and reinstalling everything.

Is it possibly due to the fact that you’re hitting the keyboard shortcut for the developer tools window? On a Mac, it would be Option + Cmd + i


That’s it. Thank you my keyboard seems to lag and inadvertently press the shortcut. Thank you.

You’re very welcome.

The developer sidebar is now returning every time i hit the delete key on my keyboard. Any ideas why this might happen and how to solve it?

That is very strange. Can you please tell me if you have any extensions installed and what they are if so? I would wager that one of them is causing this issue, one way or another.

I only have uBlock origin. The developer tab opens on its own still :frowning:

No shortcut keys mapped to ublock
