Brave/Chrome broken with latest updates in Plasma Wayland

It seems that after upgrading Brave from 1.50.125 to 1.51.110-1, it is opened in a window that is way too large. The content is blurred, and the window extends outside the screen when maximized and tiled. I downgraded to 1.50.125 and everything is back to normal. I tried on a new user, and the result is the same.

I checked Google Chrome, and it behaves the same. Chromium seems ok instead, but I see it is version 112, while Brave and Chrome are based on 113, so I guess it will break shortly.

My environment is Plasma 5.27.4 on Wayland, with a highdpi screen with 150% scaling. I’m starting the browsers with the --ozone-platform-hint=auto flag.

Is this happening only to me?

I finally found someone with the same problem: 1430500 - chromium - An open-source project to help move the web forward. - Monorail. Huge upstream bug apparently. Please star if you are affected.
