I’m a new Brave user so hopefully someone here can help with an issue I’ve found: I like to search directly in the address bar. I use Ctrl+T and then just start typing (as shown in picture 1)! After searching this way, my default search engine Google will give a whole bunch of results (pic 2).
Here’s where the
fun annoying thing starts. After clicking on a link from the search results, a new tab will open (pic 3) and then quickly redirect to…yahoo search? (pic 4). Not only does this open the new tab (and the browser switches to this new tab), it doesn’t actually open the link that I want (I have to navigate back to the previous tab and then click on it again. The second time around, it works.)
I don’t have any new extensions that I’m aware of compared to when I used chrome (in fact I have far fewer)…any help is appreciated!

This is reproducible if not every time, then nearly every time
