"Hide the menu bar by default" setting is glitchy



I have the “Hide the menu bar by default” setting enabled on my browser. For some reason, however, the menu bar still shows whenever I start up my browser. This can be remedied by minimizing and re-opening the browser, but this is still an annoyance I regularly experience.

I have to press F11 twice to hide the menu bar.
I have it set “Hide the menu bar by default” as well.

This has been a long-running problem with Brave and it still exists. It can also be “fixed” for the session by flipping the setting off and then back on again. I know the Brave crew will get to it eventually but, in the meantime, it is definitely irritating.
