New browser object being created during keyword recording

I am using Chrome for recording a set steps in keyword tests.

I have one main object, let's call it as it is mapped in Name Mapping Aliases.

Aliases.browserProcessing.processingPage.aside.section.section.section.textboxEmployername

Object selection always brings up the root Aliases.browserProcessing.processingPage[...].

 

But when I go to record a step to enter text in a new text field, TestComplete inserts a Navigate step and starts up a new browser object browser3. I'm confused why if I manually look for an object, it uses the browserProcessing, but under automatic recording, it adds a Navigate step and changes to browser3.

Also, I did put a * in my URL in my page mapping, but maybe I put it in the wrong place? It was at the end of the string, which is a constant.
