Tagging @JimB1 who may be able to help.

I have no idea. Just posting links to information that may be related to your issue and may help you troubleshoot. Please ignore if I am not even on the field. :slightly_smiling_face:

Other thoughts of things you might test.

  1. Does enabling/disabling hardware acceleration in brave://settings/system change anything?
  2. Are there any brave://flags that need to be changed?
  3. Is it working as expected in other Chromium based browsers?

Might provide insight?
