[SOLVED] Links opening multiple Brave tabs bug

For the past week (starting ~13 March), whenever I open a link outside of my browser, it opens the link 3 times. Every time.

It does this when opening links from Slack, ClickUp and other applications, as well as via scripts based on links in the terminal (eg. a link handler taking links from Newsboat and sending them to the $BROWSER).

I hadn't changed anything in these scripts, and as it also happened in Slack and ClickUp, I figured it might be the issue of Brave. But I couldn't find any known bugs about it online. fyi, If I open directly via terminal (eg. $BROWSER google.com) it opens normally (as expected).

I looked into the journal and coredumps, and see that since Mar 13, Brave is coredumping ~20 times per day. They come in sets of three, and correspond to me clicking on the links.

I tried with another browser. Installed firefox, exported the $BROWSER as firefox, rebooted. Confirmed that my browser is firefox.

Now, when opening links via the terminal now (eg. $BROWSER google.com) it opens one link in firefox (as expected). But Slack and ClickUp fail to recognize the change and still open them in Brave (3 times). And opening links via newsboat and my url handler script opens one in Brave and one in Firefox.

It's really bizarre. Why is Slack not changing the browser? Why is it doing that via the linkhandler script as well?

I haven't changed anything, so I don't even know where to look for the problem. I looked in the usual places, but couldn't figure it out.

This behaviour is happening across dwm, brave/firefox, slack, newsboat...

The relevant part of mys link handling script is this (also unchanged, and it used to work fine):

[ -f "$url" ] && setsid -f "$TERMINAL" -e "$EDITOR" "$url" >/dev/null 2>&1 || setsid -f "$BROWSER" "$url" >/dev/null 2>&1

Has anyone else experienced this?

How can I trace what happens after clicking on a link in Slack or selecting to open a link with the above linkhandler? I imagine extra processes are being spawned at some point in the flow, but I don't know where to find the fault.

Re: [SOLVED] Links opening multiple Brave tabs bug

Does

xdg-open https://www.archlinux.org

trigger this?

Re: [SOLVED] Links opening multiple Brave tabs bug

Yes. With firefox now set as the BROWSER, it opens one in Brave first, and then one in firefox.

Not sure if it's relevant, but this is the output in terminal of that command:

Re: [SOLVED] Links opening multiple Brave tabs bug

The 3 responses for the xdg-settings are:

$ xdg-settings get default-web-browser
brave-browser.desktop
$ xdg-settings get default-url-scheme-handler https
brave-browser.desktop
$ xdg-settings get default-url-scheme-handler http
brave-browser.desktop

While:

$ echo $BROWSER
firefox

If I try to change the xdg-settings:

$ xdg-settings set default-web-browser firefox.desktop
xdg-settings: $BROWSER is set and can't be changed with xdg-settings

If I do the above with sudo, it works, but it only changes the default-web-browser for the super user, not for my regular account.

The output for the last command was as follows:

$ XDG_UTILS_DEBUG_LEVEL=3 xdg-open https://www.archlinux.org

Re: [SOLVED] Links opening multiple Brave tabs bug

BROWSER= xdg-settings set default-web-browser firefox.desktop
BROWSER= xdg-settings set default-url-scheme-handler http firefox.desktop
BROWSER= xdg-settings set default-url-scheme-handler https firefox.desktop

Maybe

xdg-mime default firefox.desktop x-scheme-handler/https x-scheme-handler/http

Re: [SOLVED] Links opening multiple Brave tabs bug

Thanks so much for your help so far, Seth!

So this would change it to Firefox which is an OK temporary fix, but what's up with Brave? What if I don't want to switch?

How can I investigate where this issue of spawning multiple tabs every time a link is clicked arises from?

seth wrote:
BROWSER= xdg-settings set default-web-browser firefox.desktop
BROWSER= xdg-settings set default-url-scheme-handler http firefox.desktop
BROWSER= xdg-settings set default-url-scheme-handler https firefox.desktop

Maybe

xdg-mime default firefox.desktop x-scheme-handler/https x-scheme-handler/http

These commands worked and now when opening links via Slack or Newsboat, both just open once in Firefox (no Brave at all)! Yay!

BROWSER= xdg-settings set default-web-browser firefox.desktop

However, if I change it back to Brave:

BROWSER= xdg-settings set default-web-browser brave-desktop.desktop

... it still opens every link 3 times! ?

Re: [SOLVED] Links opening multiple Brave tabs bug

Brave is coredumping ~20 times per day. They come in sets of three, and correspond to me clicking on the links.

Check the coredumps, https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Core_d … _core_dump

What if you "killall brave" first (to not re-use a session)

Also

For the past week (starting ~13 March)

check your pacman log. Did you update glib2 that day?

What if you "killall brave" first (to not re-use a session)

If I killall brave first, and open a link without opening brave first, it just opens the link once as it should. But then if I open another link, it still opens three times. So this just fixes the problem for the first opened link.

For the past week (starting ~13 March)

check your pacman log. Did you update glib2 that day?

Yes, glib2 was updated on the 12th. What does that have to do with it?

Re: [SOLVED] Links opening multiple Brave tabs bug

glib 2.76 fundamentally altered the memory management in glib clients, exposing a lot of bugs itr.

https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php … 6#p2090386
https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php … 6#p2090396

brave seems to have such hidden bug in the code that opens the url in a new tab/window, crashes (in the client process after the IPC to the existing process succeeded) and xdg-open ("mis"-)interprets that as failure and tries the url again.

Re: [SOLVED] Links opening multiple Brave tabs bug

Oh sick!

So it's not just my setup then?

That's both reassuring and annoying! Reassuring because we've found the problem and it's not in one of my scripts. Annoying because I won't be able to fix it! =P

I'm escalating the bug on Brave's end then.

For others who want to follow along, here's a bug: https://github.com/brave/brave-browser/issues/29212

Thanks Seth!

Re: [SOLVED] Links opening multiple Brave tabs bug

You could possibly work around that behavior w/ an executable script in /usr/local/bin/brave (or /usr/bin/brave, replacing some symlink?) that looks somewhat like

#!/bin/bash
if pgrep brave > /dev/null; then
    /opt/brave-bin/brave "$@"
    exit 0 # fake success
fi
exec /opt/brave-bin/brave "$@"

Re: [SOLVED] Links opening multiple Brave tabs bug

The above worked as a temporary fix.

For others coming along:

I pasted your script into a file called brave in my .local/bin (which is sourced in my $PATH):

cat ~/.local/bin/brave

#!/bin/bash
if pgrep brave > /dev/null; then
    /opt/brave-bin/brave "$@"
    exit 0 # fake success
fi
exec /opt/brave-bin/brave "$@"

Then made it executable with a:

chmod +x brave

This apparently takes precedence over the brave entries in /opt and /usr, and so when I run brave, or click on a link, it calls my script instead of the others. This has the added convenience that I'm not messing with any root files or changing something in my /usr folder that I'll probably forget about smile

The result: I still get the coredumps, but the tab only opens once.

Thanks seth!

PS. Should we mark it as solved then?

Re: [SOLVED] Links opening multiple Brave tabs bug

There isn't much more we can do here. The brave-browser team needs to fix the (likely glib2 related) bug.

This apparently takes precedence

echo $PATH
