Back button goes home instead on YouTube

Description of the issue: When on YouTube, and in a video, when I press the back button, instead of going back to the youtube home page, it goes back to the BROWSER home page. It’s really annoying.

**Exact URL of the website in question:

Did the issue present with default Shields settings? (yes/no) yes

Does the site function as expected when Shields are turned off? no

Is there a specific Shields configuration that causes the site to break? If so, tell us that configuration. (yes/no): no

Does the site work as expected when using Chrome? yes

**Brave version (check About Brave):**1.27.109 Chromium: 92.0.4515.115 (Official Build) (64-bit)

I couldn’t reproduce your issue. Are you able to reproduce the issue in other web browsers?

Try creating a fresh user profile we’ll use for testing purposes to verify whether the issue is related to your current user profile.

No, it works fine in other browsers. Can I share a video here? I also have a reddit post on Brave browsers reddit, where I 've shared a video.

Literally any help from your end would mean a lot. I’m new to this browser, I was on Edge before, so it may be something I don’t know about. Refer to the video please…

I saw the video, but in case you need to upload files here in the future, it’s done via the button from the screenshot below.


Anyway, follow the instructions from my previous post to create a fresh user profile so we can verify whether your issue is related to your current user profile.

I just joined the community, I can’t upload because I’m a new user.

I’ll try to make a new user profile. But this issue shouldn’t be here at the same time.

I can’t create a new user profile. Just try to recreate it. The video shows it all. It went away yesterday, but returned today.

Like I wrote in my first comment, I can’t reproduce your issue.

What prevents you from creating another user profile?

Never mind, I figured it out. It was an extension on history autodelete that I was using. Thanks for your help.

That was literally the reason I asked you to create a fresh user profile. Newly created user profiles come extensions-free and have no stored browsing data. Extensions and browsing data could be the reason for variety of issues.

Anyway, glad to hear your issue is resolved.
