My Brave Browser will not access certain websites, and instead I get a “This site can’t be reached - ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED” error. For example, nhl.com. Two important data points:
(1) My other browsers on this computer (Chrome, Firefox) have no issues with the same sites
(2) If I log in as a different user on the same computer and try to use Brave to access the same sites, I do NOT get this error (i.e. I have no trouble accessing the websites in question).
As such it would appear that it is a Brave-specific (not OS-specific) issue that is somehow tied to my user configuration settings. (?)
How can this issue be reproduced?
It can be reproduced at will. When logged in as me, simply go to any of these sites (e.g. nhl.com) and I get the ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED error.
To load web pages normally, regardless as to which user is using Brave.
Brave Version( check

System is Linux Mint 20.2 (Uma). I have also tried “resetting Brave” through the Settings menu. No luck.
