In some of my tabs, when I select text and press ⌘ + C as usual to copy some selected text, the browser is actually copying a clean link, instead of copying the text…
This is also reflected in the top menu:
What causes this, so I can prevent it in the future, and how do I turn it off?
I pinged few PRs that got merged in that might be related, not sure why they made a global change for something that is industry standard keyboard shortcut and thought it was a good idea to release. This is a big regression
Also having this same issue!! It’s really frustrating, there’s no way to predict when it’ll pop up, sometimes even within the same page.
It first started a couple days ago, after I had to restart my computer - really wish I hadn’t had to do that because the restart must’ve updated my Brave browser, and now it’s non stop.
I first noticed it while working in Google Docs, found this threat (and thankfully someone in this thread pointed out the “Copy clean link” command in the browser. I thought I was going crazy). It’s inconsistent, because even in a separate Google Doc - the SAME website/platform - the “Copy clean link” option isn’t even there. It’s especially frustrating because it frequently pops up in Google Sheets where I have to copy formulas repeatedly and I can no longer work at a normal pace, having to right-click cells and select “Copy” in the pop up bar.
