Home button inactive when a new standard or private tab is opened

android
#1

In the latest release with the nav bar at the bottom, the Home icon is greyed out on a new blank tab. This is for both standard and New Private tabs

This happens all the time on a browser start or if you page back to the opening stats page.

I think the Home button should always be active and believe it was in the past when it was on the top address bar.

Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):
1.0.88

Reproducible on current live release (yes/no):
yes

Additional Information:
It is not such a problem on the regular page because my Home page is usually in the used pages shown, but when I open a private tab, I like to start from my home page and go from the links on there

@gumby31,
Thanks for reaching out and welcome to Community :tada::tada::tada:
And thanks for the report – I’ve tested this on my end and can confirm that the Homepage is only active if you’re on a website – internal pages or NTP will gray out the Home button option.

I will forward this information to the Android team to review.
