Additional confirmation that 'Private Window with TOR' is not working correctly (at least some of the time)

Twitter is not a non-secure website. Yet Brave’s TOR tab feature reports it as that.
The TOR browser doesn’t.

Brave’s TOR tab also refuses to open Protonmail’s main URL (protonmail.com) and accepts only Protonmail’s alternate URL (proton.me).

I hope these examples of an issue already reported strike the Brave team as ones that are worth looking into.

Thanks.

MacOS 10.14.3
Brave Version 1.47.149 Chromium: 109.0.5414.46 (Official Build) beta (x86_64)

Hello there @mk7z please accept my apologies for this inconvenience. Please go to your shields widget by clicking on the Brave logo > Upgrade connections to HTTPS > toggle it off.

Let me know if that works.

@Kevin_cc Yes that worked.

Since the issue with Protonmail doesn’t (didn’t) occur at all with proton.me but did consistently with protonmail.com, the reason for that is still unclear (isn’t it?).

When it works, protonmail.com now converts to proton.me in the URL line.

Protonmail, which has been investigating the issue on its end, has advised that “it seems that one exit may be banned”. I don’t know what that means, but maybe you do (?)

Does the URL convert to .me on other browsers as well or it only happens when using TOR on Brave?

@Kevin_cc Yes, TOR (the browser) also converts protonmail.com to proton.me.

Unlike Brave’s TOR feature, though, the TOR browser never returns error messages from using protonmail.com.
