Forward and Backward buttons on mouse and "Hide the menu bar by default" do not work in Brave on Ubuntu 17.10


The forward and backward buttons in the application as well as the Alt + Right and Left shortcuts work, but the buttons on my mouse do not work and make navigation difficult.

In addition, the menu bar always appears despite the option to hide it being set to on by default.

This does not happen on the linux versions of Chrome or Firefox and does not happen on the windows version of Brave.


Can confirm. More details:

The menu bar will hide itself, when you activate the option in the settings. But it will be displayed after the next launch (with the setting still active). It can be hidden by pressing the “alt” key, but it’s pretty annoying.
