Description of the issue:
I just noticed that when I type text into the url bar for search it shows habrahabr(.)ru when matching some of those letters. (both google search and duckgogo) As if it is somehow bookmarked. But I can’t find the bookmark for this url. After Googling the url I see this is adware/malware. How do I completely remove Brave preference files? Are there any other places I need to be aware of? I did a malewarebytes scan and all come back clean. I only see how to remove on a Windows machine from some virus removal websites.
How can this issue be reproduced?
1.Ive deleted my Users/[username]/Library/Application Support/BraveSoftware and did a fresh installation of Brave Browser. No plugins/extensions, no bookmarks and it is still showing up. I have a screenshot of this fresh installation.
Find out where this is coming from and remove/clean it.
Brave Version( check
