Since this is an intermittent issue I cannot give an example for a specific URL where this happens. But though deemed fixed in https://github.com/brave/browser-laptop/issues/14159 this problem still occurs.
When opening a new tab with Control+mouse click the expected behavior is a new tab opening just next to the current. The same is true for links that when clicked automatically open in a new tab.
However ever so often a new tab gets opened somewhere else but not next to the current.
I also come across situations when a new tab just won’t load any content. It’ll stay blank.
I’ve tested this with Windows 7 SP1 x64 and the latest stable Brave release.
