Description of the issue:
When Brave search can’t find suggestion and I ask Brave to allow me to use another search engine, it sends up a Pop-Up asking me to confirm I’m not a robot by using a slider over a grayscale screen. I’ve tried 15 times and can’t get the search to continue.
**Brave Version (check About Brave) up to date

Operating System:
Windows 10

If you’re using a VPN, then disable the VPN → Search something using Brave search → Turn on VPN → Shouldn’t show you the slider again next search onwards.

1st time ever had this today. Not going to fool with my VPN every time I want to search something. May have to go back to Duck. Can’t believe Brave started this crap.
