Description of the issue:
After very little use of Brave, it starts blocking every site I try to visit. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling and it didn’t help. I turned off “shields” and this didn’t fix it entirely. I read the page about shields but there is nothing about troubleshooting issues.
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
I don’t know because I don’t know what is causing the issue. The only change I made was adding Widevine so I can access Amazon videos. I removed it and relaunched and now some pages work and others don’t. LastPass shows no internet connection, but my other browsers are working fine. I can access CNN.com but not CreativeMarket.com without the page breaking.
Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
For a majority of webpages to work instead of a majority of webpages not working on default settings.
Reproduces how often:
Operating System and Brave Version(See the
About Brave page in the main menu):
Brave is up to date (and reinstalled for troubleshooting)
Version 1.22.71 Chromium: 89.0.4389.114 (Official Build) (x86_64)
How do I set up this browser to function correctly? The reason I switched to Brave is for security and privacy, however if I have to turn shields off for most pages, I’m not sure the point of using it. I have used it sporadically over about a week’s time, trying to test it out, and it’s functioning so poorly I cannot even use it.
