main page widgets not loading, sign in window never loads

When going to, the main page widgets all seem to be in a loop of loading and fail to load. Another major issue is after clicking the “sign in” button, a window pops up and just plays the loading animation with nothing happening. I am unable to choose Google or other login options.


Issue with Shields?
The issue was present with Brave default shield settings.

Does the site function as expected when Shields are turned off? Yes

Is there a specific Shields configuration that causes the site to break? If so, tell us that configuration. yes (ad/tracker blocking)

Does the site function as expected when using Chrome? YES

Browser and OS
Version 0.65.121 Chromium: 75.0.3770.100 (Official Build) (64-bit) Windows 10 1803

I signed in manually without the icons, that seemed to work okay? The front page loaded as expected. (Below is Brave release)

I would also recommend checking your Social Media Blocking section in Settings to see if you’ve disabled certain logins/embeds for websites which may be blocking this as well:

Thank you for getting back to me.

I checked social media blocking and both Google and Twitter are allowed. (Facebook and Linked in are not allowed)

The only other thing I can think of would be regional ad blocking? I use the default block list in addition to the Japanese region filters.

Maybe related to the Japanese list, can you disable that list and retest?
