Permissions request pop-ups are initially rendered corrupt on 2nd monitor

Description of the issue:
How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Go to a site that requests some kind of permissions, such as microphone. Example:
  2. Observe the corrupted pop-up request, and that you cannot interact with it (Allow/Block)
  3. Switch tabs, then switch back; pop-up appears normal. Or, you can un-maximize the window, and this also corrects the pop-up.

Expected result:
Normal-looking permissions pop-up

Brave Version( check About Brave):

Additional Information:
This issue only occurs when the window is on my larger, 2nd monitor. It does not occur with a window instantiated on my primary (laptop, built-in) screen.

Screenshot of the issue:

This issue occurs regardless of Hardware Acceleration being enabled or disabled.

What can I do to narrow down the root cause? Thanks.

Edit to add: when starting with an un-maximized screen, the issue still occurs, but is corrected upon maximizing. So the initial window sizing ‘state’ doesn’t seem to matter, it just seems like anything that causes a re-rendering to take place will correct it.

Thank you for reaching out.
Would you mind trying this with reader mode disabled (three lines icon left of the bookmarks icon)?

Hey, thanks @Mattches .

Under ‘flags’ I had the following:
Enable Reader Mode: Enabled available in settings
Enable SpeedReader: Enabled

Changed them both to Default, then re-launched. Unfortunately it didn’t resolve it.

Thank you for confirming. Can I also ask if you have any extensions installed at this time?

I do have a handful of extensions that I commonly use, but the issue also occurs in another profile with no extensions installed in it (well technically 1 installed, ‘GoFullPage’, but disabled).

Created a fresh one as well with nothing in it and all default settings (other than ‘flags’ which seem to be cross-profile) and it still occurs there.


I do appreciate you testing this out. I’ve reached out to the team to get some additional insight on this. Will reply back when I know more.
