PowerPoint Online - Slideshow not working


Description of the issue:
When opening a PowerPoint presentation from PowerPoint Online, the slideshow option does not seem to work in Brave.

  1. Open PowerPoint Online
  2. Open presentation file
  3. Click on slideshow button in bottom toolbar

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
slideshow briefly starts, but closes immediately.

Expected result:
Slideshow should run like in Chrome.

Reproduces how often:
Consistently every time I try to run a slideshow from PowerPoint Online with Brave. I have to switch to Chrome to get the slideshow to work.

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):
OS: Windows 10
Brave Version: Version 0.61.52 Chromium: 73.0.3683.86 (Official Build) (64-bit)
