Open new window when starting new instance

  • Problem:
  1. Open Brave
  2. Go to another virtual desktop and click the taskbar button, or start another way
  3. The system will go into “busy” mode for a bit (according to the cursor)
  4. The existing Brave window will simply be activated (even moving to the desktop it is on, if it is on a different one)
  • Workaround
  1. Create a new tab
  2. Right click the tab header, and click “Detach” (Or drag the tab, using the mouse, out of the tab row)
  3. Maximize that window (it will appear in a funny position, with the top left corner at the current position of the mouse)
  4. Come to this community and try to find a better way :+1:

Firefox, etc, will open a new window if a new instance of the program is launched. Is this not desired behaviour for Brave?
