All Discourse forums that use the Splash feature to pre-load assets are broken

All Discourse websites that use the new splash feature to pre-load all site elements are broken. The website loads but fails to be navigable due to what looks like a bug in Brave’s security model.

The following error occurs due to a failure to properly parse the inline script.

The line that triggers this fault is:

<script>// This script is inlined in `_discourse_splash.html.erb

When using incogneto mode, this problem dissapears. A fresh install of Brave on Debian with a brand new profile and no plugins also exhibits this behavior. Disabling “Brave Shields” has no effect.

Even this Discourse exhibits this fault, to reproduce simply load this Discourse forum.

Additional Information:

@gnif Welcome to the community.

I can’t help. I am just posting information that Brave support or another community member will probably need you to do to help troubleshoot your issue.

  1. Your Brave (1.45.131)/Chromium (107.0.5304.110) are out of date. The current versions are Brave 1.47.171 Chromium: 109.0.5414.87. Please update to the latest version. This may solve your issue with no further action. There were Chromium issue reports of response code/source map errors in Chromium 107 which appear to be fixed in later versions.

  2. Please provide the version information for your Debian OS. You can find it at brave://version. If it too is outdated, an update may also solve the issue.

Please post an update. Take care.


Strange bug, but yes, I can confirm that upgrading to the latest stable version has resolved the issue, thanks. For some reason I thought I had already done so.
