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

  1. add a custom search
  2. use custom search
  3. after a few times the search stops working and is added to “inactive shortcuts”

Expected result:
I think this might be because of a keyboard shortcut that is easy to trigger that removes or inactivates shortcuts. It’s super annoying.

Brave Version( check About Brave):

Additional Information:


@columbo Try this

  1. Open Brave
  2. Hold CTRL+SHIFT+N and test the added custom search engine in the new private window.

If working OK, one of your extensions may be causing this issue.
