  1. Highlight text on a webpage in Brave Browser
  2. Press ⌘C to copy highlighted text
  3. Paste elsewhere and observed that location of webpage is pasted instead of highlighted text

Expected result:
Highlighted text should have been copy/pasted

Brave Version( check About Brave):

Additional Information:
If I quit/restart Brave the behavior corrects itself temporarily

Same thing started happening to me today. Can’t remember if it happened yesterday, but have been struggling with it constantly today. wtf happened?

Hello?? Is this not a forum where support is available? This has pretty much made Brave unusable, so I’ll need to switch browsers unless it’s addressed.

I opened a github issue for this see the discussion unfortunately, this community wouldn’t help with this issue so I took it upon myself to open the issue


Thank you for opening the GitHub issue. I will have to remember to go straight to GitHub for future bugs.

Thank you. I didn’t realize this wasn’t a forum where support could be found.

Thanks @NoChillAustin ! Downloaded the nightly build and waiting for spylogsster to “uplift the fixes to the release channel” and Brave QA’s them

As a tedious, and ultimately untenable workaround you can control-click on the selected text and get a dropdown menu whose Copy command works.

The next Brave update is supposed to have a fix.
