I am using Brave Version 1.36.109 Chromium: 99.0.4844.51 (Official Build) (x86_64)
It is installed on macOS Monterey 12.2.1
In the past week I have been getting ads on the top and bottom of my search results when I search for “Mobile Phones” or “Mobile Phone Plans” and other search terms have ads at the top and bottom of my search results.
These ads are clearly tagged as ads and are placed there by Bing.
I do NOT ever wish to see these ads polluting my search results even if they are clearly tagged as ads.
I adjusted the Brave Shields for Trackers & Ad Blocking to Aggressive which made no difference.
I have also tried using the adblockers uBlock Origin, Adguard and Ghostery.
I tried using a variety of filter lists such as Easy List, Adguard and quite a variety of others. None of them have been able to block those Bing ads at the top and bottom of my search results.
I have also searched the Easy List forums and tried all the suggestions posted there, but nothing has worked.
I have also very thoroughly uninstalled Brave and very carefully removed all traces of Brave from my mac.
I then downloaded Brave again and performed a fresh install of Brave and made absolutely ZERO changes to its default configuration and NO Extensions were installed.
I searched again on Bing and those Bing ads appeared again.
The same thing happens when I perform searches on Bing with Safari and Firefox.
Somehow Bing has found new ways of inserting those search result ads which now evade the currently available adblockers.
Can anybody please help me find a way to block those ads at top and bottom of my search results.
