Does clearing app cache, then retrying help?

2 Likes

I’ve tried clearing my cache as well as reinstalling the app itself. I notice this problem only appears to occur when device is in portrait mode and needs to switch to landscape. The problem does not usually occur when pressing full screen while in landscape although there was one instance in which it did.

I’ve encountered the same issue once, on youtube.

Brave 1.23.74

Asus Zenfone 6
Android 11

Mine has the extra complication that Brave will not revert to portrait orientation afterwards.

Hello all, thanks for reporting.
We’re aware of the issue and we’re pushing a HF with a chromium bump tomorrow for Android.

For now, this thread will be closed.
