I am having three issues with my Brave browser. First of all, it has just been hijacked by “websearch.weather-extension.com”.
It happens like this:
- I open a new tab and write some search terms in the omnibox.
- Randomly, like thrice a day or so, instead of Google search results, I get this URL:
https://websearch.weather-extension.com/?a=we&q=[the search terms I have entered]
How can I get rid of it?
Strangely enough, I am getting two more weird behaviours for Brave hat have been happening for weeks now:
- Even if my default search is Google, randomly, like thrice a day also, the search results are Yahoo’s. I don’t even have Yahoo in my search engines lists.
- Even if I have my “ask for downloading location” activated, Brave is downloading everything to the ‘Downloads’ folder.
Brave Version: 1.8.96
Thanks for any help.
