Homescreen shortcut for Coinbase takes me to the front page, not the original page



If I click on a homescreen shortcut to a Coinbase subpage (like the /charts page), it takes me to the front page instead. I could not reproduce it with any other site except coinbase.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Use Android phone
  2. Open Brave browser
  3. Navigate to
  4. Menu -> Add to Home Screen -> Confirm
  5. Go to home screen, click on the created home screen shortcut

Actual result:
It opens a Brave tab going to

Expected result:
It should open a Brave tab going to the coinbase charts page instead

Reproduces how often:
100% of the time with Coinbase. 0% of the time with other sites I’ve tried.
