Description of the issue:
Can’t open community.brave.com links from an external source if “Block 3rd party cookies” is enabled.
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary):
1. Open this Reddit post which contains links to Brave forums I preferred the look of the original brave browser to the beta. : brave_browser
2. Open a link in the background. This happens https://i.imgur.com/6yHvzvv.png
3. Open a second link of another similar URL but this time by left-clicking and opening it in a new foreground tab. That one will load properly. Close both tabs.
4. Try opening the second URL on the background this time. This time it works, because you’ve opened it on the foreground before. From now on, that second link will open properly until the browser is rebooted.
Reproduces how often:
Always, until the link is opened on the foreground at least once.
Brave Version(about:brave): Can’t open about:brave or chrome://brave/ it says ERR_INVALID_URL
Reproducible on current live release (yes/no): I don’t have it installed.
Additional info: The problem is made worse by a bug in the shied settings which makes it unable to remember shield configuration after a browser restart. If I flip the cookie setting to “Allow all cookie” and reboot the browser, it will be back to “Block 3rd party cookie”.
