Description of the issue:
Brave only opens links in an existing window if the browser is open on the same virtual desktop. If a Brave window is open on a different virtual desktop it’s ignored.
Steps to Reproduce:
- Open Brave.
- Switch to a different virtual desktop.
- Click on a hyperlink
A new browser window opens on the current desktop.
A new tab should be opened in the existing Brave window on the other virtual desktop.
Reproduces how often:
Operating System and Brave Version(See the
About Brave page in the main menu):
Windows 10 Pro 1903 May release
Version 0.68.132 Chromium: 76.0.3809.132 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Opera, Opera Dev, and Firefox behave correctly and open links in existing windows regardless of what desktop they’re on. Chrome and Brave always spawn new windows on the current desktop where the link is clicked.
