Unwanted advertisement tabs keep opening

Description of the issue:
While browsing Amazon I keep getting tabs that open up on their own with some advertisement redirect page.

The url that comes up is
https://r.v2i8b.com/api/v1/bid/redirect?campaign_id=01H05R5B2V0AAF8E07JD8JB10G&url=https://amazon.com&source=1&cid=(random string of letters at this point)

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
Reloading Amazon repeatedly will eventually make one of these things rear its ugly head.

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
Just a new tab that opens with the aforementioned URL that brings up a white page. Which I’m assuming is because the redirect script fails to execute because the shield stops it.

Reproduces how often:
Periodic, maybe one in a dozen, it seems variable in frequency. Sometimes it goes dormant for a time

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):
Windows 10

Additional Information:
I’ve run all sorts of virus, and malware scans. They always come back clean, but those popups keep happening.

I have noticed this issue occurring to me as well on Chrome. I finally captured it in a screen recording, and also going to Amazon is what seems to be the trigger (though it is very random).

My suspicion is that it’s an extension, are you willing to share installed extensions so we can compare them?

*As it doesn’t happen every time, it will be harder to track down, but I have this extension installed and lots of complaints about it in the reviews
