Brave does not start fully maximized and enters windowed mode after exiting from fullscreen on Pop!_OS

Description of the issue:
The issue is twofold. First, Brave does not start fully maximized in Pop!_OS when using Pop Shell (the built in window manager). Second, after maximizing the window, entering fullscreen mode with F11 and then exiting it, Brave reverts back to being in windowed mode.
How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Open Brave on Pop!_OS with Pop Shell enabled
  2. Maximize Brave
  3. Enter fullscreen mode by pressing F11
  4. Exit fullscreen mode by pressing F11

Video demonstration here

Expected result:

Brave opens maximized and exits fullscreen mode maximized if it was maximized when it entered fullscreen mode.
