Fixed IP looking up for local web server not working


Description of the issue:
I fixed my ip on my laptop to access a particular device on a different vlan locally, then i typed the ip address to access the device’s web server but brave tried to make a search on duckduckgo instead of going directly to the address (this vlan doesn’t have internet access). I am using Windows 10 64 bits latest update, brave 0.58.21.
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
