    It's baffled people at Vivaldi lol. Although it seems there are a few password problems with Vivaldi on Linux.

    I don't think there are many Vivaldi dev's and the Linux flavours are not a priority. Vivaldi runs well on macOS.

    Anyone having issues with invisible tabs when a large number of tabs is open? I have a 1680x1050 screen and Brave shows a maximum number of 87 tabs on the tab bar. If I open more tabs I can scroll through them with CTLR+TAB but they no longer show up on the tab bar. It is also not possible though 'scroll' through the tab bar or something so that it shows the invisible tabs on the right.

    I don't use Brave but I update it regularly.
    My problem - Brave is LEAKING DNS through its VPN PROXY APP.
    N.B. Brave is NOT(!) leaking DNS with the Desktop VPN - the VPN software that "hides" the whole COMPUTER, but...
    BRAVE is leaking - ALWAYS - the DNS when it's being used with ONLY(!) BRAVE's VPN PROXY extension for Brave.

    Brave started having issues with Sandboxie.

    Edit.

    Another "strange" thing is happening with Brave on my three computers.
    My settings are - "Block Third Party Cookies", but when I go to "DoILeak (classical), it tells me that the Third Party cookies are supported.
    Only the setting, "Block All Cookies" produces the desirable result..

    When you enter something in the URL bar, for example as an easy way to search in history, Brave only shows 3 results. So it is quite useless. Is there any way to increase this?

    It does not matter about those updates because my issues with Brave remain the same.
    Leaking through the various(!) VPN extensions my DNS - it's not good, and that annoying (only for BRAVE) response from DoILeak about "your 3rd party cookies enabled".
    My settings for Brave.

    The note from DoILeak web-site.

    It's really annoying that BRAVE - a very private browser(LOL) - could have so many issues and NOBODY is trying to resolve it.

    It so funny.
    Here is the Brave marketing motto:

    Now, just take a look about "very important Brave UPDATES" - LOL.
    How many times those Brave Rewards are mentioned as "important updates"?

    P.S. Hello, BRAVE,

    Anything about those SECURITY/PRIVACY issues - LEAKING DNS and 3rd party cookies?
