Description of the issue:
After migrating from Old Brave to New Brave browser Windows 10 still opening links in Old Brave.
There is only 1 Brave to be set as default in the settings (picture included below)
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
- Migrate from Old Brave to New Brave using the promt in Old Brave
- Set Brave as default browser
- Click on an external link or .html shortcut
Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
Windows 10 proceeds to open links in Old Brave.
I expect to open links in New Brave browser, not in Old Brave.
Reproduces how often:
Everytime I click on a link outside of Brave like in Thunderbird e-mail client or .html shortcut
Version 0.58.18 Chromium: 71.0.3578.98 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Reproducible on current live release (yes/no):
I didn’t had Brave as default browser until I installed New Brave, then I switched and I set in Windows 10 settings. I tried to set a different browser by default then going into New Brave preferences and click set Brave as default browser which redirected me to the Windows 10 settings where I set Brave as default browser but it still open links in Old Brave by default.
I tried right clicking .html shortcut -> Open with -> Choose another app -> Look for another app on this PC -> selected brave.exe in
C:\Program Files (x86)\BraveSoftware\Brave-Browser\Application
Still opened in Old Brave. However if I open Brave using the same brave.exe then it opens New Brave.
