Brave stealing focus and not giving it back

When prompted from an external app (HP Smart) to use the browser to login, Brave comes to the front but doesn’t display any popup or login screen for HP Smart.
The message not showing could be an HP Smart issue were it not for the fact that now, even after quitting Hp Smart and Brave and reopening Brave (only) many times, Brave is still stealing the focus from all and any apps when it is open. I have to quit Brave to use any other app. When I re-open Brave, I can’t focus any other app.
