  1. Somehow, I have removed all background color for all CTA buttons. The written word is there but the oval/circle/background color is exactly the color of the background of the webpage (in this case, I using the ‘default’ and the background is white with no outline. Can you help.

    Example the phrase “Post your comments” below (under name) there is no border or background color. It’s like this for all websites.

  2. Sorry, but themes on Brave is the worst experience I ever had in browsers. Firefox is much slower, but it’s a peace of cake and so nice when installing and viewing themes. But when you install a theme from Crome Web Store on Brave:
    – Many themes (maybe most) don’t install. Firefox themes are available almost all of them.
    – Only a small part of the sreen is themed (the color of the tabs). In many cases (in most cases, to be honest), nothing is themed. Firefox themes are much more beautiful and the whole browsing region (tabs, bookmarks bar, buttons bar) is themed with parts from theme’s image (and not only with one simple color)
    – You cannot explore the themes you have download, as in Firefox.
    Please take care of themes issues, we use Brave because is the fastest browser, but it’s the worst on appearance.

    1. I agree. I have to assume that the themes work in Chrome but not in Brave because I don’t see anything like the previews given in the Theme store. I came here searching to find out what is wrong with my themes in Brave.
