Thunderbird not opening email links in Brave--possible solution

I had checked the default browser. But after all the steps I tried, I took another look at the Content Type preferences. I saw Brave listed for http and https, but the icon for the latter was not the Brave icon, just some generic bank page type of thing. So I reapplied that selection and the correct icon reappeared. Nothing changed, then I thought I’d try another restart. After that links worked.

Description of the issue:
On 2/18/2022 Email links no longer worked for Brave but did for Chrome and Firefox

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
I tried everything that was suggested in a previous post as well as restarting a couple of times during that process: Thunderbird incoming email links won't open in Brave

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
No change, except for when testing with a “fresh” start (renaming my profile) it said it couldn’t find a profile.

Expected result:

Reproduces how often:
Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):

Win 10 Pro, [
Version 1.35.103 Chromium: 98.0.4758.102 (Official Build) (64-bit)
