Description of the issue:
I reported a significant issue a few days ago and it was being discussed. A member of “Desktop support”, @Mattches, abruptly closed the topic and I cannot comment anymore on it.
This issue is no way solved. It is a major usability and privacy concern. This feature should under no circumstances be enabled by default.
That person thought they could close the topic because it can be disabled using an obscure flag that cannot be access from the regular options dialog.
That is NOT a solution and again the problem is not solved at all.
The question was
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
That just should NOT happen. It should be off by default and even so if at any point you choose to enable this feature, it should be possible to disable it from the regular options dialog.
Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
Reproduces how often:
Operating System and Brave Version(See the
About Brave page in the main menu):
What a shame. I feel exactly like on the Microsoft support forums now.
