Description of the issue: I was adding different themes to my Brave browser when I noticed that the bookmarks bar had changed to a dark blue color which makes it nearly impossible to see the black icons, such as ‘bookmark this page’ or ‘open the home page’. How can I change it to a lighter color. In settings, I can ‘restore defaults’, but if I do this, won’t lose all of the themes that I just put in?
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
Reproduces how often:
Operating System and Brave Version(See the
About Brave page in the main menu): I am running Windows 7, but I have no idea where your ‘main menu’ is located. On the ‘new tab’ page of the Brave browser, there are 3 icons. 1 is for editing preferences, 1 is for viewing and managing bookmarks, and the last is for viewing browsing history. NO main menu.
Additional Information: I am going to ‘restore defaults’ because I would rather have the bookmarks bar icons visible than not.
Thank you for reaching out.
While I think we can resolve this, it would be helpful to have a screenshot of the browser as it’s displayed on your end to get a better idea of the issue you’re encountering.
That said, a few things:
- The main menu is located on the top-right of the browser:
- From here, if you navigate
[Main Menu] --> Settings --> Appearance where you should see options for Brave themes (built-in) as well as installed Chromes:
Note that any themes installed from the Chrome web store (or elsewhere) will override the theme brave is currently using. So if you, for example, have a theme that sets the Bookmarks bar to a dark blue, changing the Brave theme option to
Dark will not change the color of any icons or text as this should be dictated by the installed theme (as I understand it).
I reset my ‘themes’ to default which fixed the dark bookmarks bar issue. Now, however, when I add various themes they never show up. I’ve still got the same themes that were there when I first started using Brave. How do I get rid of these OLD themes and install NEW ones?
Thanks for your help.
The Light/Dark themes are available by default when installing the browser. You can install additional themes in Brave but only one theme at a time. Note that this is the same for Chrome and Chromium as well.
