Wordle link also opens (incorrectly?) a Tor window

When I open the following link for Wordle: https://www.nytimes.com/games/wordle/index.html
in addition to correctly opening the standard Wordle page it also opens a TOR Window with the following link:
https://www.nytimesn7cgmftshazwhfgzm37qxb44r64ytbb2dj3x62d2lljsciiyd.onion/games/wordle/index.html

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Paste https://www.nytimes.com/games/wordle/index.htm into the location bar
  2. press “enter”

Expected result:
Only open the standard non-Tor web page and not also open a Tor window

Brave Version( check About Brave):
v1.48.158

Additional Information:

@Revtim I just tried to replicate and couldn’t. The only time I loaded what you mentioned was when I enabled Tor and had it set to redirect. Do you have these settings on or off?

Settings - Privacy and security - Brave 2_14_2023 19_44_25

It’s at brave://settings/privacy

Yes! I did have that option set, and clearing it stopped the Tor site from opening too, which I now see is a feature and not a bug. I marked your response as the solution.

Thank you, and sorry if I wasted your time.
