Brave on Pixel 6 has extreme touch sensitivity - highlights text unexpectedly rather than scrolling

Troubleshooting technical issues is much easier when both the user and support agent practice clear communication. For this reason, we have provided the template below for you to fill out with information about your issue. Please provide as much detail as possible so we can most efficiently resolve your problem.

Description of the issue:
When scrolling virtually any website the touch to move scroll position highlights text about 50% of the time even if I’m trying to have a fairly light touch.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Bring up virtually any website and scroll with your finger.

Expected result:
You expect the website to smoothly scroll, not easily highlight text. Text highlighting should only happen with a firm press on some word on the screen and then expand the selection as needed.

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Brave 1.32.112, Chromium 96.0.4664.45

Mobile Device details
Pixel 6 (128GB) with Android 12. Latest updates. Settings/Display/Increased touch sensitivity is turned off.

Additional Information:
I’ve also checked this interacting with the same website on both Brave and Firefox mobile and Brave has much more touch sensitive. It makes using Brave harder.
