Description of the issue:
When using Brave on certain websites, e.g. Facebook and Twitter, I get a very annoying popup whenever I type the letter ‘N’ to start a word. The popup offers to ‘correct’ it to the word ‘on’ and because of its position, this ‘correction’ often gets applied and then I have to backspace to delete it. See the attached image for an example.
This only happens on certain sites and not on others and I have only experienced it on my Apple devices, not on my Windows PC or Android tablet. The MacBook, iphone and ipad are all using the latest OS versions Brave versions.
The same problem is happening with Chrome on the same devices, but not with any other browser. It does not happen with any other letter or number. I have tried deleting and reinstalling Brave several times and restoring the factory defaults for Brave, but it makes no difference.
This problem only started happening in the past couple of months and I can’t pin it down to any particular OS release. I have looked for other threads mentioning the same problem, so I am baffled about what is going on.
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
It’s pretty straightforward. Just type the letter “n” using Brave on an Apple device on Facebook or Twitter and see if you get the same popup.
Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
It shouldn’t be happening.
Reproduces how often:
Every time I type “n” on certain websites, such as FB or Twitter.
