Mouse over popup does not show


I site that I use, displays data in a table. If we mouse over the columns header a popup with some information shows up.
This info is not being shown in Brave (even with all shields turned off) but it’s shown on Chrome and Safari.

Any idea why?


Hi @mgoyanes, Welcome to Community!
Can you test this with Community, try hovering your mouse over your photo on this site.
e.g. when I hover over your pic its says ‘miguel’ - does it do the same for you?

Thanks @Aa-ron
I can see the little hand but no tooltip pop up.
If I do the same on Chrome and Safari, the tooltip shows.

Can you try creating a new profile and seeing if the issue persists?
Click on the menu icon in the top right corner > create a new profile.

It persists. Even with the new profile.

Can you go to brave://settings/system and disabled hardware acceleration. Then quit and restart Brave.


Odd thing. After disabling that flag, I came to this page and saw the tooltip when I hovered over the avatar. Then tried again with no success.
When I relaunch the browser, the first time, I can see the tooltip. After one “show”, it never appears again.

BTW, thanks for the help.


I found the problem.
If I use Brave in fullscreen (control + command + f), the popup does not display. If I exit fullscreen, it displays.

Best regards,
