Browsing experience is stellar, no hitches or broken pages. I love the shield feature and not being hampered by ads left and right. The only issue preventing a five star rating is that for months now, notifications have been broken. I have them enabled, both in the app and in Android settings, and I have no extensions installed that might break this feature. Yet, I get none. Is this a known problem or is there a fix?

The main reason I use Brave is because of the Background Play feature. This was working perfectly until about 2 months ago. An update for Brave came out & since then when video or audio is playing in the background with the screen off it will play for a few minutes, & then it will stop. When I unlock the phone, I see that the tab has frozen and I have to reload it. This never happened before that update came out. I've tried clearing the cache multiple times & restarting, but it still happens.

I was one of the first Brave users and continue to be a loyal supporter. I am running into an issue that's getting very annoying and I'm hoping the devs will take a note of it. The address bar is sometimes disabled. It's still there as a UI element. But it turns into a band that does nothing or doesn't display the usual address or "Search or type URL" text. Only way to recover is to kill and relaunch.
