Reproducible on current live release (yes/no):

Additional Information:
I can Turn On the notifications in Firefox and Chrome, but not in Brave.
If I refresh the page I can momentarily see the available setting that should appear after clicking the Turn On button, but they quickly disappear. AND these setting coincide exactly with how I’ve configured them in Twitter as run inside Firefox. If I change them in Firefox (whether open or not) if I refresh or reload web notifications I can see the momentary display is exactly that before it disappears and I am left with the inoperable “Turn On”: button.

No doubt about it, somehow the Twitter notifications in Brave are linked to Twitter in Firefox.

I have found this asked before, but no clear cut answers.

Looking into this issue right now. We did just release an update to v0.60.55 today - can you update and confirm whether or not you’re still seeing this issue?



Tested on my end and I’m seeing the same results after updating.
