Description of the issue:
The download bar no longer shows at the bottom (or anywhere) on Brave during or after a download. How can this issue be reproduced?
Select a file for download from a site
Note the distinct lack of the Download Bar on Brave during and after the download
Scratch your head in wonder as to how this could occur
When one or more files are downloaded, I expect the Download Bar to appear as it has for years now, tracking the status of the download. Brave Version( check About Brave):
Version 1.50.114 Chromium: 112.0.5615.49 (Official Build) (64-bit) Additional Information:
This is a repeat of the unanswered “How do I get downloads to show at the bottom of the screen?” topic (How do I get downloads to show at the bottom of the screen?)
I am running the same version of Brave on multiple Windows computers and they are all misbehaving identically, that is - no Download Bar appears.
This fixed the problem for me, too.
But how did it arise ? There’s no way I could have accidentally enabled those flags.
And there are dire warnings of using an experimental feature. This feature isn’t experimental, it’s been the default for years.
