Url hijacking with affiliate links

I keep getting Brave’s affiliate link hijacking my url when I type something in manually. It’s very obvious as I use a script blocker and I see the affiliate page not redirecting because it is blocked. Caught it on GoDaddy & Apple.

I have auto suggestion turned off. But it doesn’t matter because I type in the full url in the url bar and it just gets hijacked to an affiliate url. It’s not from auto suggest it literally rewriting the url I type in the URL after hitting enter on my keyboard.

----Update----
Fresh install fixed it. Appears to have been from malware, but malware scan didn’t pick anything up.
