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 Browser.app' 'http://images.google.com'
Will cause brave to open a connection on port 80. Additionally (but I’m having a hard time reliably producing this, if I type
images.google.com 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?
- 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 Browser.app' 'http://images.google.com'or equivalent in a terminal
- if the url is
http://the https upgrade failed completely. If the URL ends in
/?gws_rd=sslit means google redirected an http request to https on it’s own (instead of brave doing that)
All connections whether from a bookmark, email client click, manual entry in the url bar try https first, if the upgrade setting is enabled.
