@heptigb I’m not having this issue. Only thing I did end up getting at point is just the notice on the bottom that I have seen 1 of 4 free articles. But everything loads.

It might be helpful for you to provide the following info:

  • Which OS are you using? (you have tag for Windows, but is it 7, 8, 10, or 11?)

  • Which version of Brave are you using? (don’t just say “the latest,” but provide actual version number)

  • Have you tried in Private Window?

  • Can you try in a new browse profile? (Hamburger Menu imageMore ToolsAdd New Profile)

  • Are you using any extensions?

  • Are you using a vpn or proxy? If so, try to disable and see if anything changes.

to respond to your questions:

-error is

  • I f I right key the mouse and open in a private window that works
    this shouldnt be necessary should it?

  • There are no extensions

  • standard connection no VPNs etc

Thanks for you response!

@heptigb We ask you to test in a private window because it’s a troubleshooting step.

Private window opens a new window with no cookies and with all extensions disabled. So if it works in a private window, it helps narrow down the issue to be either cookies or extension.

I also asked you to try in a new profile as it helps to confirm similarly. New profile creates a second profile with default settings, no cookies, and no extensions installed. So it’s one step “cleaner.”

It’s all about trying to narrow down possible causes.
