Gmail as of Aug 13 will not open in Standard mode, it forces HTML mode only on Brave Browser, please help!

Hahaha yeah I feel your Frustration Rethanis, believe me.

Before I even posted I researched online and tried a number of things, to no avail, as I didn’t want to just randomly post on here if I could fix it myself… but alas i was unsuccessful.

I really appreciate your help! :slight_smile:
I will try that.

Okay sadly no :frowning: still HTML after trying the enabling and disabling

I am also baffled by why this is happening now, when I’ve used this browser for so long and no issues at all. It is my main browser and loved that about it. I don’t want to have to go back to Chrome just for my Gmail…

Can you check whether disabling Hardware Acceleration via brave://settings/system has an impact? It doesn’t make sense but Hardware Acceleration causes unexpected issues in Brave now and then.

Tried it by turning hardware acceleration off, Relaunched the browser, relogged back into gmail and Sadly still HTML.

I also tried again to click at the bottom of the Gmail window for the Standard mode view option, and nope it reloads still in HTML despite that.

All right, let’s check whether the issue persists in a fresh user profile.

Follow the instructions below. Just make sure you close all windows of the current user profile after you create the new user profile, I want you to test while only the new user profile is active.

Okay I tried a new Profile and Gmail works as intended on it.

Funny enough, Old extensions I had on the original browser profile popped up on in the list, but I removed them and it still all seems to work. I didn’t even have to shut down the Shields for the website or anything, I made no alterations.

Just started a new profile and opened Gmail and entered credentials and all works normally.

So is there now anything I can do with my existing profile to have that happen to it also?
It sucks to have to use another profile just for Gmail haha… very odd

Not sure this is entirely a Brave issue. Goog is changing/moving to something called Workspaces and they have this list of what they support:

Changes at google

It looks like new things are recently being implemented and somethings are being taken away.
I read something titled “Google Meet support for IE11 ending August 17, 2021”, so this tells me something foul is afoot @goog
I hope the fine folks @Brave can find us a solution.

Why do things have to change? :_(

Ehm, what extensions? I thought you didn’t have any extensions in the original user profile?

@rgrainer

I believe Brave will be supported as well because it’s based on Chromium. I’m not sure why you two are having Gmail issues, everything works as expected on my end.

This is also happening to me, a new profile fixed it, but I’d love to know how to fix my old one.
Or a quick way to transfer all my bookmarks etc across to the new profile?

Version 1.28.105 Chromium: 92.0.4515.131 (Official Build) (64-bit)

You can export your bookmarks and passwords, and then import them into your new user profile.

brave://bookmarks/ → click on the 3 dots and choose import or export.
brave://settings/passwords → click on the 3 dots next to Saved Passwords → import or export.

@Mattches @sampson @rebron2000

Please, take a look at this thread whenever you have the opportunity. Multiple users are reporting the same issue, the issue is not present in a private window and/or a new user profile. I’m not sure what might be causing the issue as I can’t reproduce it on my end.

Here is what we know about the issue so far:

  • Clearing browsing data doesn’t resolve the issue.
  • Disabling extensions doesn’t resolve the issue.
  • Disabling Brave Shields doesn’t resolve the issue.
  • Disabling Hardware Acceleration doesn’t resolve the issue.
  • Resetting via brave://settings/reset doesn’t resolve the issue.
  • The issue is not present in Google Chrome.

Using an unsupported browser

If you use Google Workspace on an older or unsupported browser, some features might not work, or an application might not open. For example, on an unsupported browser:

  • You may be able to view, but not update, your calendars.
  • You may be redirected to the basic Gmail interface.
  • Drawings and presentations in Docs editors may not display properly.

→ The latest Brave update, because users haven’t experienced the issue before that.

After you exported bookmarks and passwords, do you mind checking if resetting the old user profile resolves the issue? You can do that via brave://settings/reset.

Thanks for the replies.
I’ve just tried this, sadly no luck, still only loads standard mode.

Highly appreciate your quick reply and assistance, @hellodave!

Do you recall when the issue showed up? Was it after you updated to the latest Brave version?

Highly appreciate all the work that goes into this great browser! @Rethanis

It showed up this morning, was fine last night, I’m not sure when it last updated.

Despite the information above, I’m still not sure the issue is related. All of us are using the same Brave version, you have issues - I don’t. Furthermore, if Brave falls into the category of “unsupported browsers”, it doesn’t make sense that your issues disappear in a private window and/or user profile.

I pinged Matt for additional support since I’m literally running out of ideas.

Use a private window or a new user profile as a temporary solution until the issue is figured out. Hopefully we’ll have more details regarding the issue as soon as possible.

If you would like to export your bookmarks and saved passwords from your current user profile, and import them into your temporary new profile:

brave://bookmarks/ → click on the 3 dots and choose import or export.
brave://settings/passwords → click on the 3 dots next to Saved Passwords → import or export.

I’ll keep looking for more details regarding the issue. Will keep you updated if I find anything that could be of help!

Same thing happened to me, very suddenly, late last night. Standard gmail opens in a private window fine but in a normal window it insists on the Basic HTML mode. Have tried shields down and disabled all extensions, no change. All other Google things working normally, Drive, Contacts, Maps etc.

Quite like the retro look of the old gmail although it’s not very practical. :smile:

@AgentStarling have you checked whether clearing your browsing data resolves the issue?

  1. Open brave://settings/clearBrowserData via the address bar.
  2. AdvancedTime rangeAll time.
  3. Cookies and other site data, Cached images and files, Site and Shields Settings.
  4. Clear data.

Note: clearing Site and Shields Settings resets global Brave Shields settings, make sure to check them out at brave://settings/shields if you weren’t using default settings.

Thanks, yes I have, but it does not fix the issue.
