Can't open hyperlinks from GTK based applications

Description of the issue:
When clicking on hyperlinks in other applications, it opens a new window showing a new tab. On other Chromium based browsers like Chrome and Vivaldi hyperlinks are opened without any issues. For some reason opening hyperlinks from KDE, Qt and other non-GTK applications works just fine and this issue remains only on GTK based applications.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.

  1. Trying to clear mimetypes
  2. Trying to set Brave back as default browser
  3. Trying to set Brave as default browser in settings
  4. Seeing that none of these worked, trying various applications
  5. After trying out, it seems like the issue remains only on GTK based applications

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):

Expected result:

Hyperlinks should work fine, just like in other non-GTK applications

Reproduces how often:

Only when opening hyperlinks from GTK based applications

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):

Debian 10, Version 1.5.115 Chromium: 80.0.3987.149 (Official Build) (64-bit)
