Android, add to home screen. Pinterest and Instagram shows vertical on portrait tablet

I have this Samsung tablet (but this issue is in every android tablet/phone I used) that I always use it on landscape. Rotation is locked by system.
If I add Pinterest or Instagram websites on home screen, Brave load them vertically. If I select the Brave menu option to load the page in the Brave browser the website is landscape.
I have no Pinterest or Instagram app installed.
Any solution?

Hello Kevin_cc! :slight_smile: I deleted the desktop shortcuts and cleared the browsing data.

Here how the issue can be reproduced:

  1. Go In the browser the website rotate following the phone/tablet rotation. This is how it should work.

  2. Menu → Install App
    However from some website the option is “Add to Home screen”.
    By the way I do not have the Pinterest app installed.

  3. A confirm window will show. Choose ADD.

  4. A Pinterest shortcut icon, with a tiny Brave Browser logo, is created on the desktop.

  5. Click the Pinterest icon. The page will rotate in portrait mode no matter how the phone/tablet is rotated.

Expected results:

The page should rotate following the phone/tablet rotation.

Brave version:
Tablet: Brave 1.45.113, Chromium 107.0.5304.62
Phone: Brave 1.46.116, Chromium 107.0.5304.91

Feel free to ask for more info or tests I can perform.
