Hello @TabView

Thank you for reaching out and I’m sorry to hear you are going through this. If you go to:

Settings > Accessibility > Uncheck "Simplified version of open tabs" does not appear?

Be waiting for your response!

@TabView,
I believe this option appears when you have accessibility settings enabled on the device itself as well. Do you have any enabled at this time?

I have no clue what that means. The option disappears and reappears sporadically, no matter what I do.

Do you have any accessibility features enabled in the Android system settings? Typically found (on your Android device) in Settings --> Accessibility

downloaded apps: Access dots, gc auto clicker
display: dark theme

@TabView,
I’m still curious if you have any accessibility settings enabled in Settings --> Accessibility?

That said, I’m now wondering if you temporarily disable the apps you listed above that you have installed, do you still see the Simplified view for open tabs option available in Brave?

It changed again, I did not do anything


this is clearly a development probelm
