Why is Brave browser opening up my Downloads folder instead of taking me to URLs typed in the address bar?

I’m encountering a maddening error all of a sudden where every time I type a URL into the address bar, when I click to go to the URL, all of a sudden my Downloads folder opens up, as though I’m trying to save the URL as opposed to going to it. No matter what I do, this is happening, and it’s making me insane, since Brave has been a great little browser, very stable, until now. Bookmarks are unaffected by this, and I am also running Linux Mint 19.3 on my desktop if that helps at all. Any input as to why this is happening all of a sudden??
