Ads showing everywhere

Description of the issue: Ads showing everywhere despite Brave Ads settings.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
Unable to not produce the issue. Have re-installed Brave twice and ads always show regardless of website.

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
Ads show on websites regardless of Brave Ad settings. (I’m repeating myself.)

Expected result:
Ads are replaced by Brave Ads.

Reproduces how often:
Anytime Brave is used.

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):
Win10 x64 18362.175 || Brave v. 0.65.118

Additional Information:
Opted into Brave Rewards and constantly get the terrible ads and pop-ups that Brave is touted as assisting with. I have used Brave for two years now and I figured the issue would resolve, but it has not. Perhaps it’s the Chromium base? I have no idea. I am seriously considering dropping Brave for another privacy-focused browser. I figure two years of waiting is plenty.

@mkru544,
First, can you please ensure that you update to the latest release – v0.65.121 at the time of writing this.

Additionally, you may be seeing first party ads on websites, as these are not blocked by default. Would you be willing to provide an example screen shot or two (and accompanying URLS) in which ads are known to appear on page?
