iOS URL autofills after every backspace press


Description of the issue:

I am using a keyboard folio with an iPad Pro 11. When I begin to backspace a url, it keeps autofilling after every single backspace. This means I have to press backspace twice as many times as required. The behavior should be similar to safari.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.

Select the url in the url bar

Press backspace

The url autofills

I have to press backspace to clear the autofill and then press backspace again to delete the next character

Then the url immediately autofills and I have to press backspace to remove the autofill and then backspace again to delete the next character.

Very annoying

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):

Expected result:

I expect that the url does not begin to autofill after each time i press backspace to remove characters in the url.

Reproduces how often:

Every time

Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):

Version 1.8 (

Reproducible on current live release (yes/no):
