Description of the issue:
On start of Brave browser, a new unwanted tab appears.
It’s an ad of online betting service that I never used or visited.
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
- Start the PC
- Brave browser starts on its own (unwanted as well) showing the last session
- The session is as it was before the last shutdown/restart
- Immediately a new tab appears right next to the last tab viewed (not always at the end of the tab que) and loads “the https://winbet.bg/bg/casino/all” website.
Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
Unwanted ad as a new tab.
No unwanted tabs.
Reproduces how often:
On start or pc, regardless if brave was closed before that or left open during shutdown.
Operating System and Brave Version(See the
About Brave page in the main menu):
Version 1.22.70 Chromium: 89.0.4389.105 (Official Build) (64-bit)
I visit sites with popup tabs sometimes and Brave manages to get almost all but not all of them.
I ran a virus check, downloaded the latest most expensive Avast antivirus and ran extensive checks of the whole system.
I ran a safety check inside brave.
I ran a Chrome check for unwanted software.
I reset Brave and when the problem persisted - uninstalled and then reinstalled.
The problem persists.
