Brave adding wrong prefix to the beginning of some websites

Description of the issue:
When using brave some websites that use a different prefix from www get www. added to the beginning in addition to the real prefix, causing me to have to go in and manually delete it afterwards. This is a brave issue as it doesn’t happen when I type the same website into chrome.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.

  1. Try to visit a website that uses a prefix other than www
  2. Website gets www added to it.

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
