Description of the issue: Opening links from external apps with Brave as a default browser opens an empty new window instead of clicked link.
How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Have existing session of Brave Browser opened.
  2. Click on weblink on an external app (for example, Telegram client).
  3. An empty new Brave window opens without the clicked link.

Expected result: Clicked link should open as a new tab in existing session of the Brave browser.

Brave Version( check About Brave): Version 1.22.71 Chromium: 89.0.4389.114 (Official Build) unknown (64-bit)

Additional Information: Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS

If no existing session of Brave Browser is opened, then clicking on external link can work as expected.

Yeah, we’re aware of it, working on a fix
