Description of the issue:
New install, while going through the initial configuration steps, Brave kept switching monitors, back and forth between my main and secondary.
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
- Install Brave
Wait.Close or open a tab.
- Watch it switch back and forth between primary and secondary monitors every time.
Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
It… switches monitors.
It won’t switch monitors, unless I tell it to.
Reproduces how often:
Well, it’s been going on since I first launched it, so maybe 10 minutes?
Version 0.59.35 Chromium: 72.0.3626.81 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Reproducible on current live release (yes/no):
Windows 10, dual-monitor setup, running DisplayFusion from Binary Fortress. This does not happen with any other program; a completely novel issue.
Edit: New information from observing behavior. Seems to trigger whenever a tab is closed
or opened. Nope. Just whenever a tab is closed. Does definitely switch back and forth, though.
Final edit: I was going to add this as its own comment/response down below, but it looks like the topic’s been closed, so I’ll just add it here for anyone who comes across this in the future.
I’ve spoken with Binary Fortress (makers of Display Fusion), and they’re not only aware of the issue, but they’re working on a fix which is to be released with the next version. So, the workaround listed below will suffice for the time being, and in the (hopefully not-too-distant) future, we’ll have an actual fix which won’t eliminate one of the better functions of DF!
