Description of the issue:
I can not view, edit, or remove Blocked Elements that I create using Brave’s Block Element.
I went onto piped.video and used Brave’s context sensitive menu to block the div video-grid. This worked, the video grid no longer displays.
The problem: Now I can’t remove the block. Here is what I tried:
I checked the custom filters list, it is empty.
I tried unchecking the 2 filter lists I had (e.g., “EasyList Cookie”) so that there were NO filters displaying on the Filters Setting. Restarted brave, went back to video.piped, however no change - the video grid is still not displaying.
I tried turning shields OFF for that page, video grid still wouldn’t display.
I tried clearing EVERY setting under advanced for the last 24 hours and restarting my browser, still no video grid.
I double checked in an incognito window that yes, there is a video grid that displays there.
Finally in desperation I uninstalled brave, restarted my computer, and reinstalled brave. That finally cleared out the blocked element.
So I’ve now done a test on yahoo and am having the same exact experience. The element stays there even though I can’t find it anywhere.
Exact URL of the website in question:
The 2 I’ve tried are:
piped.video and yahoo.com
Screenshot of the ad as it appears in Brave:
The problem is that it’s NOT appearing.
Here is the example in an incognito window. Note the Scoreboard on the right. This is the element I blocked with Brave’s Block Element
Here is a screenshot in my normal Brave window - you can see the scoreboard contents have been blocked - even though the Shields are OFF
Here is a screenshot of my Filters page. No filter lists are checked and the Create Custom Filters is empty:
Did the issue present with default Shields settings? (yes/no)
Does the site function as expected when Shields are turned off?
Does the ad appear when using a Private window as well? (yes/no)
Yes (but it’s not an ad and I WANT it to appear)
What OS are you using when you see the ad?
Brave version (check
