Brave browser terminates shortly after a weblink in Obsidian notetaking app starts the browser

Description of the issue:
When a weblink in the Obsidian notetaking desktop app opens the Brave Browser that is not already running when the link is clicked, the browser opens to the weblink for 10-20 seconds and then terminates. If the Brave browser is already running when the Obsidian weblink is clicked, the Brave browser remains open.

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

  1. Ensure the Brave browser is not running.
  2. Open Obsidian and click on a link to a webpage.
  3. Brave opens the webpage and then terminates after 10-20 seconds.

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):

Expected result:
The Brave browser should remain running

Reproduces how often:

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):
Feren OS 2022.04, KDE Frameworks Version 5.92.0, Qt Version 5.15.3, Kernel Version 5.13.0-39 Generic (64-bit), Graphics Platform X11.
Brave Version 1.37.111 Chromium 100.0.4896.79 (Official Build)(64-bit)
Obsidian version 0.14.5

Additional Information:

I have no clue how to use the app (first time user). I created a link, and wouldn’t make it clickable. I’m only on this application defaults here. Can copy, and search within the url selected. Nothing launches a browser window.


Try using ( , or
If you want a link name to appear instead, try prefixing the latter with the link name in single brackets. This will appear as link name and be clickable to go to the website.
