Bug on MacOS Monterrey

Description of the issue: When I click around any page elements a cursor shows up like if it was a text input

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Find some website of your choice - for example wikipedia.com
  2. Find some text you are able to select (hold and drag your mouse and the background changes)
  3. Click anywhere between the text and a writing cursor will show up

Expected result: The cursor shouldn’t show

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Version 1.42.88 Chromium: 104.0.5112.81 (Official Build) (arm64)

Additional Information:
I feel this is quite annoying as it gives the impression everything is editable. Please either fix or make an option to disable it

Hi and welcome to the community. Sounds like caret browsing might be enabled. Try this:

Hope this helps! Take care.
