Description of the issue: One of the splitted screen flickers after trying to close it. I have two tabs open in the private window that flickers.
The computer mouse is also flickering when hovering it on the flickering window.
As a side-note, computer mouse is flickering or leaving a trailing trace on the screen on every start of Brave browser.
How can this issue be reproduced?
- Drag the general window to the left side of screen.
- Drag the private window to the right side of screen.
- Close the private window being split.
Expected result: The private window closes.
Brave Version( check
About Brave): 1.62.153 Chromium: 121.0.6167.85 64-bit
I use Linux Ubuntu 22.04 LTS 64-bit.
I am uploading a video about it:
It happened to me single time I try to close a window, or to edit the Bookmarks from the drop down menu. I installed beta version, and it’s the same issue from the start.
I had to downgrade to Brave 1.62.147, and the problem is no longer there.
Edit: I’m using LMDE 6, and since you’re an Ubuntu user, it could be a problem with Debian-based distros…
There’s another user with same issue, and he’s using Debian 12. So I think we found a pattern.
What happens next after we found a pattern?
The same for me, but openning more than one tab in the same window without splitting. Every thing is stable until I close brave from the close button, then the issue happens. Closing tab by tab, brave closes normaly. Same version of brave and ubuntu as the first post
Now we’re four… I tried to open a new thread with the “Brave malfunction in Debian based distros” issue but it’s not allowing me to start a new topic.
Might the standard mesa package could be related with it? I recently installed it and before that I had no flickering.
