Bug: launching browser from a weblink shortcut (macOS) – Brave still opens blank tab

in MacOS you can create icons which are shortcuts to a web link. Clicking on that icon will open that web page, and will open the browser if it is not loaded.

When the Brave browser is not yet open, the browser launches and opens the web link first – but then it also opens a blank page on top of that. it should not open the blank page because it already has opened the web link URL from the shortcut.

problem solved if in Preferences you make sure “On startup” is set to “open the New Tab” page.

Hi @nobodyknows,

Thanks for the feedback and for the request!
