New Tab opening by itself

Description of the issue:
Hello! My issue with Brave browser is when i open the browser it opens google tab as i expect because i setted it up like that in the settings of the browser, but when i open brave it opens the google tab and then a new tab that it appears from nowhere without clicking anything… How i can fix that?

Exact URL of the website in question:

Did the issue present with default Shields settings? (yes/no)

Does the site function as expected when Shields are turned off?

Is there a specific Shields configuration that causes the site to break? If so, tell us that configuration. (yes/no):

Does the site work as expected when using Chrome?

Brave version (check About Brave): my version is 1.59.124

@st0kicha it’s hard to answer for a variety of reasons. Do keep in mind the information provided at Creating Topics if you post in the future. Not only is this in the wrong category, but you provided very little information which makes it difficult to help you.

I’m primarily going to answer you and assume desktop. But with not hearing if it’s Android, Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, etc it can be tricky. Each has some slightly different settings and capabilities. Such as how desktop can use extensions but mobile can’t.

The primary thing I’d suggest is for you to double check your settings. SettingsNew Tab Page is set to open what?

Then SettingsGet StartedOn Startup is set to what?


Your Home button is set to what? SettingsAppearancesShow Home Button


Those aside, we don’t know if it might be an extension you have that’s trying to open anything. Can you disable your extensions and see if it makes a difference?
