"Hover over hyperlink to show URL preview before clicking" = Not Working

As with most browsers, Brave is supposed to have a feature where if you hover over a hyperlink on a webpage, the full url is previewed in a status bar on the bottom left of the screen. This feature is not working for me.

This problem has been reported before, but the thread was closed. It’s still a bug, though, that really should be fixed because of the security risk of not being able to easily tell the destination of hyperlinks.

Of all the solutions on the previous thread, AfterShock’s trick to re-size the window is the only one that works, and it rarely works.

Bump to report that I have the same problem over macOS.
If this doesn’t get fixed I will be forced to change browser since this is a serious security issue.
