Shortcut goes to main page instead of url that was in the address bar


Description of the issue:
When I create a shortcut for a page, it opens up the home page instead of the page that I was on when I created the shortcut. If I create a bookmark, the site opens to the same page/url that was in the address bar. I assume should be the same behavior when creating a shortcut

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Navigate to specific web page url (I’m using a KACE ticketing instance)
  2. open menu → more tools → create shortcut
  3. check the open as window box
  4. double click the link from the desktop

Expected result:
The window should open and display the same url as the page I was on when I created the shortcut

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Version 1.36.105 Chromium: 99.0.4844.45 (Official Build) unknown (64-bit)

Additional Information:
I’ve tried pasting the url into the command field of the shortcut details, but then it doesn’t open up as a window when I click the shortcut.
