Brave opens part of a web page in a window on the web page

Description of the issue:
Brave opens part of a web page in a window with scroll bars. Also, if I click on a link within the window it opens the link in the same window where in other browsers it opens the link in a new tab.
How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. It is doing that on the current page - Brave Community:
  2. It does it in almost every eBay page that is advertising a car/truck

Expected result:
Some way to show the entire web page without having to scroll both the entire page and a window within the page.

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Version 1.23.71 Chromium: 90.0.4430.72 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:

So you’re just wanting to open links in new tabs instead of new windows? Or am I misunderstanding something here? If not, you can use ctrl + click to open links in a new tab.

No. I want the entire web page to show without showing part of the page in a window within the web page. I can e-mail a pic of what I’m talking about.

Yes a screenshot would great. You can copy/paste images directly into the editor here on Community. Imgur links also embed the picture as well.

This is this page with the greeting in a window - notice the scroll bar on the right side.

This is another example on eBay:

We are blocking the tracking, which has a issue with ebay iframes. Given how minor it is vs privacy, I chose privacy.

adding this into brave://adblock

will “fix” it, but does allow the tracker.

That worked. I have been using another browser to view these types of pages so six of one, half a dozen of the other. Thanks.,
