Weird Google Sheets behavior - entire sheet changes to one color when trying to access a spreadsheet, this does not happen on Chrome. Video included

Description of the issue:
When I go to a google sheet on google drive, it looks normal. When I click on any cell inside the sheet, the entire sheet morphs to either yellow or white and becomes unreadable. All data is there, and I can modify the data.

On Google Chrome, I can’t replicate this behavior. I’ve also switched accounts. I’ve restarted, force quit, and checked for updates all of which didn’t solve the problem.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.

Open google sheet.
Click anywhere.

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):

[Here's a quick video of me doing this](

Expected result:

Reproduces how often:

every time

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):
Windows 10 Version 10.0.18362 Build 18362
Brave version 1.7.98

Additional Information:

Hi @CryptoBasicBrent, Welcome to Community!
Thank you for the video. That was very helpful!
I’d like you try a new profile test - can you create a new profile, visit the same sheet and see if you getting the same issue?
Click on the menu icon in the top right corner > create a new profile.

I tried that and the behavior continued, this time with a black color on the sheet where white/yellow was before.

As an update to this, I have tried a system restore to last week and it did not solve the problem.

Would you be willing to download one of Brave’s other builds to test if the issue also happens there?

I would, but I uninstalled chrome and it seems to have solved the issue. I used chrome only when brave has some issues with sites so I won’t miss it. Maybe there’s a weird overlap in processes or extensions?

I dunno but I guess it’s solved!
