Search area bar is happening in weird places

Description of the issue:
I am on a laptop and was cleaning in between my keys with a cleaning wipe and pressed a lot of keys at once. Which in hindsight was not very smart. But I pressed something and now randomly when I am clicking with left right or middle click on my mouse, the flashing bar that comes up when typing something comes up. Even though it isn’t a search or message place. Like YouTube video titles or on the side of images. It only happens inside of brave.

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):

Reproduces how often:
It happens very often. Every click that isnt a link or something that does something when clicked, like a “read more” type thing.

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):
Brave v1.36.111 Windows 10 home V21H1

Reset settings to default, see if it works.

Or create a new profile and migrate all your data from old profile to new profile.

Or uninstall and re-install it again (make sure to put the data on sync chain)

That’s Caret Browsing. Press F7 to turn it off.
