Brave Version( check About Brave):

Additional Information:

Edge does not throw such an error. The Private (TOR) window pops up on it’s own and displays the site, indicating that this has to do with my IP address.

Question What the Heck is Brave doing to me and why? Please tell me how to make it stop. It’s annoying and I am about to abandon BRAVE as a browser. I am old enough at 68 to take care of myself. I do not need a Nanny.

I have tried all the solutions for this that I can find in Brave Help and in online searches. I do not have any extensions installed.

Can you please go to Settings → Privacy & Security → Tor windows and toggle the option Automatically redirect .onion sites to “off”, then try visiting the site again?

Thank you
