Backticks in Search bar and Fonts

Description of the issue:
How can this issue be reproduced?

In the Brave search bar, type successive backticks. They will render correctly by the search engine once submitted, but the backticks display incorrectly in the search bar.

Expected result:

Like in other browsers, the backticks should show side-by-side and display horizontally just as other characters do.

Brave Version:

Version 1.35.101 Chromium: 98.0.4758.87 (Official Build) (64-bit)
This also has been an issue I noticed in at least the last two builds.

Additional Information:

The backticks act as if they are a zero-width character and they stack up upon one another unless intentionally spacing them out.

Also, I cannot seem to change fonts via the Customize fonts option.


Using Brave Browser v 1.35.101 for Mac OS . . .

Used a New Private Window and the Brave Search Engine:

Yes, I don’t experience this problem on other operating systems, just Windows.


Your version of Windows OS – may help Brave Support.

Version 10.0.22000 Build 22000 (Windows 11)

I’ve reinstalled Windows 11 with the Microsoft ISO image and the former issue is gone.

Thank you for making the extra effort. Bless you.

The user is most often the actual troubleshooter. Requires determination. You have that.
