Brave keeps randomly opening what's new page on Tor

Description of the issue:
The Brave Browser keeps opening the What’s New page on a Tor new page, happening to me for about 2 hours before posting this.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
Don’t know if there is a way to force it. I’m just doing my things browsing normally and all of the sudden a Tor page is opened with the what’s new Leo AI info.

Expected result:
Not randomly open a new Tor what’s new page.

Reproduces how often:
Happened almost 10 times in this two hours.

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):
Windows 11.
Brave Version 1.60.114 Chromium: 119.0.6045.124 (Official Build) (64-bit).

I can confirm this behavior on Windows 10. It will randomly open when using the system, or if I leave my system for 5 minutes, I will have this tor page open.
Exact same version as the reporter.

I do not want to disable onion sites. Just stop spamming us.

I use Brave for less advertising… LESS ADVERTISING PLEASE.

Can you share a screenshot of the page opened in a Tor window as it’s displayed on your end? The page shouldn’t be opening in a Tor window at all and should only appear after an update is applied.

Can you also confirm you’re (now) using the latest build of the browser (v1.60.118 at the time of writing this)?

Thank you
