Links from external programs open a New tab

Whenever I click a link from an external program (Word, VS Code, etc.), it just opens a New tab instead of the actual site.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Clicking a hyperlink on an external program.

Expected result: Brave opens the site I want to visit.

Brave Version( check About Brave): 1.39.111

@StirCrazy,
Thank you for reaching out.
Does this happen when the browser is opened, closed or both? Additionally, can you tell me if you have any extensions installed in the browser at this time?
