Privacy Browser proposes to open Telegram and WhatsApp contacts

Hello, I'm not sure if it can be considered a bug, but anyway.
After last update I noticed that PB shows up as a possible app when messaging/calling for Telegram and WA.
In the attached image you see the right icons for 'messaging' because I told "open always with".
I have a Samsung Galaxy A5 2017 with Android 8.
I'm not sure I fully understand what let to the attached screenshot. What app are you in, and what option did you select, that led to that screenshot?
The situation is: no app opened at all, I just open my list of contacts on the phone, then I go on a contact and see as in the picture.
If I actually try to follow PB in opening, for example, a call on Telegram it shows:
"Impossible to load the web page at content://com.android.contacts/data/6864 since: net::ERR_FILE_NOT_FOUND"
I didn't make any setting for PB.
If you can't post a video, a precise description of each step, with the version number of the contact app you are using, would be helpful.
Yes, unfortunately a video would show telephone numbers, so I'm forced to avoid it. I tried to make an image instead. Please see it attached here :-)
The contacts app is: "Contacts" by Samsung, version 220.127.116.11

Thanks for the detailed images. They explained to me what is going on, and I am able to replicate the problem on a Samsung tablet.
The solution is to limit Privacy Browser's content intent filters. Probably to something like the following:
<data android:mimeType="text/*" />
<data android:mimeType="image/*" />
<data android:mimeType="multipart/related" />
<data android:mimeType="mmessage/rfc822" />
I'll have to play around with them a little bit to see exactly what is needed.
- Status changed from In Progress to Closed
