Google Discovery news urls sometimes open in tab view?

Description of the issue:

When I click on news in Google Discovery, sometimes the tab doesn’t open directly, but the tab overview page, where the respective news page then appears in thumbnail view. At this moment, the entire Brave browser seems to hang a bit.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Open Google Discovery Screen
  2. Click on News with Brave as your default browser (sometimes it happens - of 10 clicks approx. 2x)

Expected result:

The tab should be directly in focus.

Brave Version( check About Brave):

Brave 1.67.123

Mobile Device details

Google Pixel 7 Pro / Android 14
