With no open window, links from external apps don't open

  • C. A listing of:

    • i. Your Operating System and version: macOS High Sierra 10.13.6
    • ii. Your Brave Version.
      Brave: 0.23.107
      V8: 6.8.275.24

      OS Platform: macOS

  • D. Detailed step-by-step instructions of how you came across the issue.
    Example:

    • i. I have Brave open.
    • ii. I have closed all Brave windows.
    • iii. I click on a link from an external application (Mail in my screen recording).
    • iv. A new Brave window opens with a single empty tab. The link I wanted to view is not displayed.

Note: If Brave is not running when I click the link, it starts properly with the desired link in a single tab. Or if Brave is running with an open window, the link opens in a new tab as desired. The problem is only when the application is running with no open windows, which actually happens often for me.
