Thanks for reporting.
Can you please tell me if this behavior occurs when you’re using a Private browsing window and/or a fresh browser profile?

This is super weird behavior — wondering if there may be an extension that you have installed here that is causing it.

Thank you for looking into this. I’ve tested the behavior in a Private browsing window, and the issue persists. Additionally, I’ve attached an image showing the extensions I have installed. Please let me know if any specific extension might be causing this unusual behavior.

@evelaguti going to ask 3 things

  1. Can you update Brave and make sure it still happens? Current version of Brave is at least 1.61.104, though saw announcements of 1.61.106 on the way. Either way, I see you mentioned yours currently on 1.61.101

  2. Would you create a new browser profile and test? To do that, go Hamburger Menu imageMore ToolsAdd new profile. This creates a secondary profile with default settings and no extensions. Without changing anything, see if it happens there.

  3. Go to brave://flags. Have you changed anything there?

The update to brave solve the issue. Thank you :smiley:
