Automatic ipfs redirect bug

Description of the issue:

When trying to visit a CID such as
brave://ipfs or ipfs://bafybeiemxf5abjwjbikoz4mc3a3dla6ual3jsgpdr4cjr3oz3evfyavhwq/wiki/Vincent_van_Gogh.html, the recommended example CID, Brave redirects making it impossible.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Load ipfs://bafybeiemxf5abjwjbikoz4mc3a3dla6ual3jsgpdr4cjr3oz3evfyavhwq/wiki/ - a search redirect is done instead.
  2. Load brave://ipfs - chrome://ipfs is redirected instead

Expected result:

The content should load without redirection.

Brave Version( check About Brave):


Mobile Device details

Amazon Fire

Additional Information:

Changing the search provider doesn’t change the results.

I downloaded Brave to my Android phone and the problem is the same: attempts to visit ipfs URIs are redirected to a search for it as if it were a series of keywords.

Is this feature disabled on all mobile app versions?

I just read it’s not available for mobile users: “IPFS support allows Brave desktop users …”
