Repost 2: Opening list of bookmarks makes Brave connect to bookmarked website without my permission

Description of the issue:

Opening list of bookmarks makes Brave connect to bookmarked website without my permission. This has been happening for a long time.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Launch Brave
  2. Tap dots “…”
  3. Tap “Bookmarks”
  4. Tap “Mobile Bookmarks”
  5. Brave lists the bookmarks AND makes an outgoing connection to one or more bookmarked websites without actually opening that website
  6. For example, my bookmarks are
    example1.com
    example2.com
    example3.com
    As soon as I open the list of bookmarks, Brave would make an outgoing connection to example2.com without me tapping on it, and without opening the actual website. I suspect Brave could be trying to retrieve the favicon, but I could be wrong.

Expected result:
Brave should not connect to any 3rd parties without my permission

Brave Version( check About Brave ):
