Linux update gives unreadable menus = black on black

Description of the issue:
How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Go to any menu item in bookmarks, both bookmark bar and bookmarks folder. Every single time.

Expected result:
I should be able to read the menu items. Background and font colors should both be specified and have enough contrast between them.

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Version 1.1.20 Chromium: 79.0.3945.74 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:
I have been using brave browser on this linux distribution for many months. Ubuntu MATE 18.04.3 with this issue only happening on occasion during form entry on the web.

Same Issue … all drop down menus are black on black

This is still about brave on linux (I have Ubuntu Mate 18.04). I was able to read the menus after making the following changes.

Settings… Appearance… Theme…


Hope that helps for now since we aren’t getting any linux support love…

Thats a regression : Brave breaks GTK theme on ubuntu 16/18.04 since Brave 1.1.20 released.

Chrome and Chromium 79.n don’t break GTK theme.



My menus were blacked out same as described by others. I followed your directions -> Settings -> Appearance -> Theme,

but in my case I ws already on CLASSIC, I switched to GTK and the problem was solved.
