Always gives the Keepass2Android autofill service the search string "Tor Browser"

I'm using the Keepass2Android password manager. It provides an Android autofill provider.

In other browsers, such as firefox, the Android autofill framework appears to be getting the URL as part of the search-string/key, allowing the Keepass to fetch the appropriate username and password for the web page. (screenshot attached)

In the Tor browser it appears to just be getting the search-string "Tor Browser", forcing the user to switch to the Keepass2Android app and search for the corresponding web page themselves.

I tried using the Google autofill provider instead (from the provider list in the accessibility settings), and that *does* work as intended. i.e. it could be a bug in the Keepass2Android provider, but otoh that provider *does* work with other browsers such as Firefox.

Btw one (not very discoverable) workaround is to instead "share" the page with the Keepass2Android app, which will then open the corresponding entry for use with the Keepass2Android keyboard.
