Toolbars not being hidden while scrolling

Description of the issue:

Top and bottom toolbars are not automatically hidden while scrolling.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Cold start Brave
  2. Visit any website, scroll down to hide toolbars
  3. Visit second website, scroll down to hide toolbars again

Expected result:

Toolbars should be hidden, yet after the very first try they remain visible until the browser is restarted again.

Further would I expect the feature to work despite the bottom toolbar setting being disabled or not

Brave Version( check About Brave):


Mobile Device details

Tested on:

Google Pixel 7 with Android 13
Google Pixel 5 with Lineageos 20 (Android 13)
Huawei MediaTab M5 with Android 9

Additional Information:

Before finding this post on Reddit, I assumed Brave didn’t have the ability to hide the toolbars at all. It was the toggling of the system accessibility shortcut option in combination with enabling the bottom toolbar that would hide the toolbars, be it only once.

A quick test with the latest nightly (1.61.26) gave the same results.
