Screentime makes All brave windows on Mac go full screen

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.

  1. Open brave browsers
  2. Close Mac screen and let it sleep
  3. Open screen
  4. See all browsers are now full screen

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):

Expected result:
The browsers should not be in fullscreen, but just inside their regular spaces before I closed the laptop screen.

Reproduces how often:
Every time my laptop go to sleep.

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):
MacOS Catalina

Additional Information:
Version 1.27.109 Chromium: 92.0.4515.115 (Official Build) (x86_64)

Bumping this as it’s still happening to me

I’ve just found out that when my Mac activates ScreenTime’s “Downtime”, then all windows go into fullscreen.

This seems to be the root cause of the issue. Now, does anybody know how I can fix it?
