New tab via clicking link doesn't use previous page settings

Troubleshooting technical issues is much easier when both the user and support agent practice clear communication. For this reason, we have provided the template below for you to fill out with information about your issue. Please provide as much detail as possible so we can most efficiently resolve your problem.

Description of the issue:

New tabs from links that create new tabs/windows don’t use the same settings as the page they were spawned from.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Click a link that creates a new tab
  2. New tab behaves like I manually created a new tab

Expected result:

The new tab should have the settings of the previous page. This is particularly annoying when using Desktop mode. New tabs will default to the browser default which means a heck of a lot of URL editing which is atrociously difficult in Brave to begin with (ever try to scroll to the beginning of a URL in the location field? Arrrg!)
