I use the site search shortcut feature in Brave to search sites such as Amazon by typing part of the address into the address bar, then hitting ‘tab’. When it works, I get a prompt to enter a search term for that site without first having to load the site and use its own search box.
I’ve found that every day or so this stops working. When I check brave://settings/searchEngines I find that the Amazon shortcut for example is ‘deactivated’ and I need to activate it again to be able to use it. This happens over and over again - I must have activated the Amazon shortcut 10 times or so in the last week or two.
How can this issue be reproduced?
- Activate Amazon site search in brave://settings/searchEngines
- Use Amazon site search from the address bar until it stops responding to the ‘tab’ shortcut
Amazon site search will need activating again from brave://settings/searchEngines
