Ads aren't being blocked anywhere anymore

Fixed I believe, no ads on Zero Hedge using Brave anymore.

A few days ago youtube started showing banner ads on top of the home page. Now it displays ads in videos. I have to use uBlock Origins to block youtube ads. Please fix this as it makes Brave just as any other browser now.

Well, did the Twitter fix and relaunched though it said component not updated, which I take to mean it’s actually up to date. I’m too paranoid to turn off Adblock Plus just yet. But I see that now, ABP says it’s blocking nothing, while there’s a changing number next to the Brave shields icon again, saying that things are being blocked. (During the error it just kept saying one thing was blocked, even on sites with lots of ads.)

(Twitter never let me verify my account so I can’t respond there. I have yet to see ads on the Android version *knock on wood* so I haven’t tried updating that yet.)

So…it SEEMS to be working…though I’m going to knock on wood and be wary for a bit since a few users say it’s still not working for them. :confused:

Hi @murkeedyaz
So you are using the same Brave version 1.7.98 Chromium: 81.0.4044.113 (Official Build) (64-bit) as @tehuti88 and ads ARE being blocked for you when they are NOT blocked for

?
I’m doing some investigating to see what I may encounter when installing a new version of Brave on windows 7 desktop.
I will not be able put up with any extra google interference. :grimacing:

@tehuti88

Twitter bot decided I was a bot when I tried to sign up, so blocked account there.

I am still on the old version of Brave so until I reinstall with the new version I will not be able to ascertain if this glitch is happening on my desktop windows7 set up.
Android appears to be ok, but agreed :

Hey all, for folks that still seeing ads,

Can you try again with the steps linked in my previous reply? You may need to click Update more than once. Just to make sure it’s updated to 1.0.552. And restart the browser.

Hi, tried the about:components updating but am already on 1.0.554 (“up to date”) with the issue persisting.

This is happening again now. Ads on YouTube specifically.
Brave Ad Block Updater Version: 1.0.555

It started on youtube, which is like the basic where you should have ad blocker

Hey there,
This issue is occurring again.
Ads showing up on YouTube.
Version 1.8.96 Chromium: 81.0.4044.138 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Brave Ad Block Updater - Version: 1.0.576

I am fine because I do brave + dns hard core blocking for youtube / filtering everything for ads, I don’t see anything. I run about 30 braves browsers from work, home, 2 extra computers and don’t see anything wrong yet. I use all 4 of the brave’s Main, Beta, Dev, Nightly. All fine for me

Are you saying you have a unique / non-standard setup? If you do DNS blocking your situation would be different to a majority…

Lists like these anyone can do it…

Brave helps out with the java script and the other stuff I can’t block. If you go and put this inside of brave browser you can see the code… It’s really BAD… Its safe, your not running it tho.

I use pihole / pfsense (Firewall with a dns resolver inside of it with a filter while forwarding the dns to the pi hole upstream and then doing more filtering as well. From the dns traffic itself.)

Pfsense (Firewall, not wifi router - comes after the wifi) filter is called “pfBlockerNG”

Also, I forgot to tell you should turn on fingerprinting protection on, it will help out with some websites…

Interesting stuff, I appreciate you sharing this info - thanks.
Not familiar with Pi-hole or Pfsense but will definitely look into it sometime.

Still seeking out a reason why stock Brave isn’t blocking YouTube ads - it seems like an issue that pops up every few weeks.

Check this out, Works great custom blocking from brave. Just have to know how to use it, you will get the hang of it if you try it. :slight_smile:
