Bing hijacking my browser

bing search engine is hijacking my browser

**when using bing .com a popup keeps appearing wanting to add bing extensions as well as it keeps popping up with its own search resullt alongside the results its already given **

i see it put the screenshot at the bottom of the message:

Expected result:

happens all the time

**windows 10 21h2 &

Version 1.41.96 Chromium: 103.0.5060.114 (Official Build) (64-bit):**

Additional Information:

Go to brave://settings/shields and turn the adblocker to aggressive (or do it just for bing via the lion icon).
Then go to brave://settings/shields/filters and click on, Fanboy social list (middle), Fanboy annoyance list (middle), Ublock annoyance list (last one).

It will probably solve this problem. If it does not then do the same search where such annoyyances appear-> Right click on the page-> Click on the lion icon (it will be in middle in the list)-> Select the annoyances elements-> It will ask for create or quite, select create.
View them (or delete incorrect ones) from brave://settings/shields/filters, create custom filters.

thank you I turned it all on to aggressive and my two original complaints are resolved by the looks of thing but now the bing news feed seems to be more aggressive . But atleast i can minimise that . It just seems odd that a software can just dominate a browser the way it does Surely bing is not playing fair by doing that

just some follow up i guess motr for your own interest . Turning the brave shields to their most aggressive seemed to have worked, however this morning ther exact same issue happened , Thanks

sorry heres the screenshot
