Notifications not playing sound and do not stay in Notification Center

Description of the issue:
Whenever I receive a notification (for example new e-mail from Gmail) the notification shown does not play any sound and it doesn’t stay in notification center so it goes easily unnoticed.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Navigate to this site
  2. Click on Authorize
  3. Accept the Request to show notifications
  4. Click on Show

Expected result:
The notification should play a sound and it should remain on Notification Center

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Version 1.20.103 Chromium: 88.0.4324.152 (Official Build) (arm64)

Additional Information:
I have checked in the System Preferences and Brave has all the permissions it should have for notifications.


I am facing the same issue while using Slack in the browser on MacOS Big Sur 11.2.3.
Brave version: Version 1.21.76 Chromium: 89.0.4389.86 (Official Build) (x86_64)

I get notification sounds, but the notifications don’t stay in Notifications center.

In contrast, while using Slack on Edge browser, all notifications stay there in the notifications center.

This seems to be a Brave specific issue.

Same here. A web site can be set to allow notifications, and MacOS Notifications Settings are set to show Alerts, so that notifications should be “sticky”. However, they disappear after a couple of seconds. Chrome and Safari notifications work as expected.

Same here. Both macOS Catalina and Big Sur the notifications in Brave browser (Version 1.22.71 Chromium: 89.0.4389.114 (Official Build) (x86_64)) disappear in between 2-120 seconds.
In both macOS Safari and Chrome notifications are stays until I close them and stay in notification center as well. I use “Alerts” style in system settings.

Brave shows notifications but without sounds (tested in whatsapp and telegram web versions). There was only 1 notification sound out of hundreds. Its was the first and the last time I’ve heard it. It was after switching ‘sound’ option to ‘allow’ from ‘automatic (default)’ in ‘brave://settings/content/siteDetails’.
