Text in Brave Browser looks like snowflakes or text and characters gone


Hi, I downloaded brave today and immediately tested a website where the “Save” button on a specific website will only react when working with Internet Explorer (not Even Edge or Firefox worked).

I am happy to report that the Save button worked when I used Brave.

However, the text on the page is either not displayed as expected or the text looks like snowflakes and one cannot read the text.

I have uploaded two images to show this behavior. Any suggestions on how this can be resolved?




Thanks for reaching out.
Lots of issues caused by Hardware Acceleration present like this so I would start by disabling that and seeing if it helps. You’ll find the option in:
Settings --> Advanced --> System --> Hardware Acceleration


Hallo #Mattches,

I do not find a “hardware acceleration” on Windows 10 Laptop,

Should the Brave Software not take care of issues like this. It is not a problem on other browsers?




I have the same issue. the browser is unusable… but i’m going to stick with it because i like the idea you’ve created. I can’t read the page at all, and I have follows several tutorials on how to turn iit off, but no luck. will wait for a fix.


@driep011, @carlh1,
This is often a Hardware Acceleration issue. This is a setting in the Brave Browser. Disabling it may resolve the display issues you’re both encountering. As stated above, you can do this by:

  1. Open the main menu on the top right of the screen:

  2. Select Settings:

  3. Scroll down to the Advanced section until you see System:

Toggle this Hardware Acceleration option “off” and restart the browser.

Let me know if this resolves your issue.



I have switched off the hardware acceleration toggle in Brave Settings. It has resolved my issue.




same issue with font text colors, sometimes it changes to violet. disabling the hardware acceleration has resolved id.
