Not able to highlight links when using a bang

When using a bang (ex: “!yt”), and go to the address bar to get the link, it does not show/highlight the link. It treats it like an empty, new tab.
Typing out the website, searching for it and clicking the link, and using a bookmarks all work and it highlights the link, but when using a bang, it doesn’t even show the link.
This happened to me on the iOS mobile app.

Hello @lenon

Thank you for reaching out and I’m sorry to hear you are going through this. Could you please share the following information:

1- What is your iOS version?
2 - Have you updated to the latest Brave version?
3 - A screenshot of the issue.

Be waiting for your response!

Hi, I’ve included screenshots and an explanation of what happens. It happened on iOS 16.2 on brave version 1.46.2

I first type in any bang I want to (here I used !yt)

Then I tap the address bar (and sorry about what is being shown on the home page)

And when I do, it doesn’t highlight the site name, it just has an empty address bar.

It isn’t the biggest deal, although it never happened before.
