I can't click on Brave Ads in Pop!_OS 21.10 (GNU/Linux)

Issue: When a Brave ad notification pops up, I cannot click on it. As soon as I hover over the notification with my mouse’s cursor, the ad’s popup notification disappears. This does not happen with any other system notifications. For example, I can click on the Pop OS “update available” notifications, and they open up fine. This started happening in around December of 2021, and it has been this way since. I still get credit for being served the ad, but I cannot ever successfully click on the link to the ad (in other words, I can’t see the ad at all e.g. in a new Brave browser tab). Prior to December 2021, when a new Brave ad notification popped up, I could click on it, and it would open the ad in a new Brave browser tab.

My version of Brave:

Version 1.35.103 Chromium: 98.0.4758.102 (Official Build) (64-bit)

My Pop!_OS 21.10 setup is 100% stock.
I have enabled tiling windows, but turning tiling on or off does
not change how the Brave Ads behave (I can’t click on them either way).
