It looks like there was an old bug report for this but it looks like it was closed without ever addressing the issue https://github.com/brave/browser-laptop/issues/5282. It seemed to suggest that this would start working when the Chromium engine was used but, of course, it doesn’t work even on the latest version of Brave. I’m just curious if it’s ever going to be fixed?
