I am using Brave 0.24.0, but the issue has been the same in prior versions. When browsing various news sites and scrolling using the touchpad (Dell XPS 13 running Windows 10 64bit), scrolling stops randomly. There are only two ways to ‘unfreeze’ touchpad scrolling:
- Restart Brave, or,
- Open (any) link in a new tab
There is no discernible connection to any activity on the page, it appears to stop working randomly. Scrolling with the scroll bar or the up and down keys still works, just not using the touchpad. Changing tabs does not unfreeze the touchpad scrolling, but opening a link in a new tab always works.
