Brave replaces Mail.app in Share Menu

Brave has take over the Share menu on OSx and replace Mail with Brave.

Description of the issue:
How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Right click on file to share (or select file and click Share Icon in Toolbar) and scroll to Share.
  2. Share Menu appears
  3. No option to use Mail

Expected result:
With previous versions, doing the above would give an option to Share via Mail. The result would be that the the file (pdf, jpg, doc, you name it) would be attached to a new mail.

Currently there is no Mail option when sharing items and when trying to set the preference to show Mail, it lists Brave in place of Mail (see attached screenshots).

Brave Version( check About Brave): Version 1.17.75 Chromium: 87.0.4280.88 (Official Build) (x86_64)

Additional Information: OSx version Mojave 10.14.6

Confirmed that this is a problem from Brave.

  1. Deleted Brave and disabled all Brave settings.
    ~/Library/Application Support/BraveSoftware/Brave-Browser/
  2. Share menu works as expected.
  3. Fresh install of Brave
  4. Share menu does not work as expected.

Found the problem/solution. The default app to open mail changed (I did not do this) from Mail to Brave. Changing this back to Mail and restarting fixed the issue.
