If I do that I do get to see and control the saved passwords, but I can’t get there from the settings pane reached from the hamburger menu. There are no ‘Additional Settings’. There used to be but my latest version doesn’t have that. The hamburger Settings show this:
Clicking on Settings in the hamburger menu takes me to brave://settings/ which I showed above. Zooming out does bring the full settings page into view, including Additional Settings. There are no scroll bars and the page will not drag or scroll in any direction.
So I guess this problem is solved but replaced by
“The brave://settings/ page will not scroll to show all of the settings”.
Thank you for reaching out about this. Yes that is indeed the issue (the screen zoom level), but you’re right — the browser should have a scroll bar or some way to move about the settings screen when zoomed in, specifically when using a mouse.
With a track pad, you are able to drag the screen around and view everything without the need for a scroll bar, but with a standard mouse you would need a scroll bar to do this. I’ve reached out to the team to see if this is something we can implement in future releases. Thank you.
‘Dragging with the trackpad’ is something I tried and it didn’t do
anything other than highlight the text in that first ‘Get Started’
panel. Zooming out is the only way I can see to view the left hand
No, I haven’t searched for similar issues, not until this issue arose
maybe a day before I reported it.
I don’t regard the window showing the problem as ‘narrow’. I use a 15"
Dell Inspiron laptop and use windows half a screen wide. The Preferences
tab came up without being deliberately zoomed by me. The text does not
look overly large and the zoom setting is 100%. There is whitespace
left, right and below. Changing to 90% shows it all with the gap between
the left pane and the ‘Getting started’ pane being much narrower than
the left hand whitespace at 100%. It doesn’t look like a pure scaling
issue to me - more of a show / don’t show of the left pane.
