Refresh keyboard shortcuts (ctrl+r, f5) do not work

issue: using the latest version of the brave browser in linux mint installed using apt and updated whenever there is an update available, keyboard shortcuts for refreshing a page do nothing. the old standby F5 doesn’t work, nor does the suggested ctrl+R in the right-click context menu. using a mouse to navigate to a tiny button leads to a lot of wasted time. i thought maybe it was just that the browser was losing focus, but no amount of clicking around on various parts of websites allows the refresh key combinations to do anything. i have nothing fancy installed for overriding or customizing key combinations, and other applications have no issue accepting input from my keyboard.

to reproduce:

  1. use stock brave on linux mint
  2. load a website
  3. try to refresh it using keyboard shortcuts

expected result: page reload, refreshed contents
