Https upgrade not working reliably

Description of the issue:

I have the Upgrade connections to HTTPS setting enabled.

When Brave Browser receives a plain http link from another app, it opens that link in http even if it is possible to upgrade to https. For example, on macOS running the terminal command:

open -a '/Applications/Brave'  ''

Will cause brave to open a connection on port 80. Additionally (but I’m having a hard time reliably producing this, if I type with no url scheme in the URL bar, brave will open the http version instead of the https version.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. click on a macos web bookmark file, click on a link in a different program (like a mail app) or run open -a '/Applications/Brave' '' or equivalent in a terminal
  2. if the url is http:// the https upgrade failed completely. If the URL ends in /?gws_rd=ssl it means google redirected an http request to https on it’s own (instead of brave doing that)

Expected result:

All connections whether from a bookmark, email client click, manual entry in the url bar try https first, if the upgrade setting is enabled.
