When I click a URL from within an email, Brave closes and reopens

Description of the issue:
OFTEN (but not always) when I get an email with a URL inside and I click the URL, Brave closes and opens again. When it does so, it tells me that Brave is not my default browser (but it is) and it asks me if I want to restore my tabs.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Click a URL from within an email.

Expected result:
When I click the URL, I expect a tab to open in Brave and the URL to be opened in that tab. I don’t care if the tab is brought to the front or not. In other words, I don’t care if I have to click on Brave to see the URL tab but it seems like it should open automatically…and it might if Brave didn’t close.

Brave Version( check About Brave):
[Version 1.11.101 Chromium: 84.0.4147.89 (Official Build) (64-bit)]

Additional Information:
This does not ALWAYS happen but DOES more often than it does NOT.
I’m using Ubuntu 18.04 and Thunderbird 68.9.0 (64-bit).
