Description of the issue:
When Brave is started, after one or two seconds the mouse often remains stuck, sometimes the pointer disappears altogether. This affects the entire system while Brave is running.
The mouse returns to normal as soon as Brave is closed.
Brave and everything else work fine though, using keyboard.
CPU usage is normal, Brave starts up quite fast and is otherwise responsive.
As a workaround, I quit and restart until it doesn’t eat the mouse.
It happens since the last update, sadly I skipped a few and don’t remember the last version I’ve been using, though it was rather recent (> 1.24.85 for sure).
Incidentally, the update also fixed whatever had me use
--disable-gpu before (not really sure which version actually did it, I’ve been running Brave with that switch since then).
How can this issue be reproduced?
Happens, intermittently but more often than not, on an iMac8,1 (x86_64) with macOS 10.11.6
Brave Version( check
It doesn’t seem to make a difference if there are other applications running or not.
I tried waiting for a good while but the mouse remains stuck.
I tried unplugging and reconnecting the mouse after the problem, no result.
I tried unplugging the mouse before running Brave and then reconnecting, no result.
Let me know if there’s something I can try.
Thanks for still supporting this OS version.
