Cannot open URL links in Windows Mail

As of yesterday, I cannot open links from Windows mail (Windows 10) with Brave as my default browser. They work fine in Edge. I’m seeing this issue posted in multiple places, but it is either unsolved or the solution is to stop using Brave. I have been using these together fine for months now, though.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Set Brave as default browser
    2.open an email with a link in Windows Mail
    3.Click on the link to open it
  2. Receive an error message, link does not open.

Expected result:
Link opens in Brave as usual

Brave Version( check About Brave):
v1.5.115

Additional Information:
This was posted here in September and December and was never responded to. It’s clearly not a new issue, but it only just began for me so it’s not just that the programs are incompatable
