Description of the issue:
Some Brave icons beside address bar remain light grey with “dark” Brave colors selection, but white tab/address bar Theme. The icon color is corrected when switching to “light” “Brave colors,” so I believe it has to do with a conflict between Brave colors and compatible colors for certain themes.
How can this issue be reproduced?
- Launch Brave.
- In Appearance settings, set “Brave colors” to “dark” or “Same as Windows,” if Windows is set to dark mode.
- Navigate to Chrome Web Store, and install a theme with a white tab/address bar field (ex. “Black & White,” “Classic Blue”).
- Observe tab/address bar icons.
Reload, bookmark, extension menu, and options hamburger menu icons remain nearly white, as if a dark tab/address bar is still in effect.
Problematic behavior: Dark Brave Colors, Light Bar Theme.
Expected Dark color behavior: Dark Brave Colors, Default Theme.
Expected Light color behavior: Light Brave Colors, Light Bar Theme.
Aforementioned icons should become dark for legibility, like the behavior of the browser forward/backward buttons and like the behavior prior to the below mentioned release.
Reproduces how often:
Always. This has been an issue on first browser relaunch after browser update for at least the last 5 releases, including even bookmark bar text, but a browser restart solved the issue in the past.
Brave Version( check
Brave release - v1.43.88
Reproducible on current live release:
I’m using Windows 11 Pro 21H2, OS Build: 22000.856. I have reset the theme to default from Appearance settings and reapplied desired theme; problem persists. I have restarted the browser and restarted the computer; problem persists. I have not tried a reinstall of Brave, but I am highly skeptical that that would resolve the issue.
Appearance bug is also present in Downloads bar, as seen below.
