Highlighting text and right click should work even if mouse cursor is not on highlighted area

When I highlight some text in Brave and I then want to e.g. search the text on Google I right click to bring up the options menu for the highlighted text. However, this only works if my mouse cursor is inside the highlighted area, otherwise the text is deselected and I get the regular right click menu.

This is very annoying, because often times when I highlight a text and instantly right click my mouse cursor is slightly to the right of the text and the text is deselected. So instead of highlight → right click, I have to highlight → move cursor above text → right click.
