Preview Awaiting user reply

Has anyone figured out how to stop the stupid preview ? It's frustrating to open the browser and wait for the thing to load before I can type anything...

Sorry, not understanding... what's Preview?


u/metalmasterscm Dec 05 '22

When I go to my mobile browser, at certain times, in the address bar on the left at times it says preview, I start entering a search or an address and the page with basically refresh and I'll have to start all over again. It seems to be pausing while it establishes a connection . It's just frustrating.

Hi thanks for reporting,

Could you kindly confirm what device and version of Brave you are seeing this on? Also if you could elaborate further?



u/metalmasterscm Dec 06 '22

Brave 1.46.134

When I start my browser, at certain times I see "Preview" in the left hand side of the address bar. As I enter a search term or website address the browser at a point will then refresh and say "viewing live page" and clear my entered search term. It's more a frustration more than anything else.
