Reddit daily email in gmail - links do not load

Not sure what’s going on here, seems odd. Clicking a link from reddit daily email in my gmail doesn’t work, loads a page that contains “{}”

Same link works just fine in Chrome.

Example link:
https: //$deep_link=true%26correlation_id=223f8139-e880-4ade-97a0-20648cd0ebba%26post_fullname=t3_11tpneo%26post_index=1%26ref=email_digest%26ref_campaign=email_digest%26ref_source=email%26utm_content=post_title/1/01000186f2859340-d1098d49-6460-47b0-a312-bf88a1319d11-000000/b3SnaLr9WI3QlBp3060gsUflvQUlu8_TLr1yI5occCw=292

Redirects to:
https: //$3p=e_as&$

in Brave Desktop.

Let me know if any additional info is required for troubleshooting. Thanks!

I am also having this issue and have been having it for the past 4-5 days. Copy links directly from the email and they work fine in Chrome but not in Brave.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Open daily digest email from Reddit
  2. Click on a link to view the post
  3. New tab in browser is opened and takes me to a page with only {} on it.

Reproduces how often: Always

Brave version: 1.49.120
Chromium: 111.0.5563.64 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Reproducible on current live release: Yes

Additional information: I am using Windows 10 19044.2728 Experience Pack 120.2212.4190.0

I had the same problem, but it’s working as normal again today.

Interestingly, Brave is still on exactly the same version, so perhaps it was a problem handling that specific user agent on the Reddit side?

Glad I wasn’t going crazy. Seems to be working for me as of today as well. Thanks guys!
