I have same issue as @painterengr

I had the problem where the Bluetooth mouse would work at first, but then suddenly: "Bluetooh Disabled".

I checked dmesg and found this:

Bluetooth: hci0: Broadcom Bluetooth Device
[ 5.279438] Bluetooth: hci0: BCM20702A1 (001.002.014) build 1761
[ 5.281325] bluetooth hci0: Direct firmware load for brcm/BCM20702A1-0a5c-21f3.hcd failed with error -2
[ 5.281333] Bluetooth: hci0: BCM: Patch brcm/BCM20702A1-0a5c-21f3.hcd not found

Which led me to this bug reports and and I quickly found this:
https://github.com/winterheart/broadcom-bt-firmware/blob/master/brcm/BCM20702A1-0a5c-21f3.hcd
Which I copied over to /lib/firmware/brcm/BCM20702A1-0a5c-21f3.hcd

After I rebooted the machine, the Bluetooh icon was completely gone from the GUI and in settings it says "Bluetooh disabled"

So using that firmware completely botched Bluetooth on my system.
