New tabs not opening next to current tab and blank tabs

windows
bug

#1

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.
