Description of the issue:
Not sure when this appeared as I am a recent user on windows but here is the problem: each time I type a valid domain name in the URL bar such as https://weeblr.com (same happens with or without the scheme), Brave does take me to the site but it thinks it knows better and opens a suggestions bar with “Did you mean to go to https://weebly.com”?
That bar is a big nuisance: it takes up screens space, can only be closed by actually clicking on the x sign which really is a pain and basically prevent using the browser for any demo or client work.
- why would this happen when the URL is valid and can be reached?
- why would this happen when I disabled “Use a prediction service to help complete searches and URLs typed in the address bar”??
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
Type https://weeblr.com in the URL bar and press enter.
Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
You get to the site but you also get this:
You just get where you want to go and no painful banner is displayed.
Reproduces how often:
Operating System and Brave Version(See the
About Brave page in the main menu):
