Description of the issue:
Opening a new web page and using Brave Shields.
Exact URL of the website in question:
Numerous to include Brave’s website.
As I was trying to type before but somehow got silenced in the process: I go to Navy Federal and it does not load properly. I lower Brave Shields and reload the page and it works fine. I got to Brave pages (i.e. this one and some others), I have to lower Brave Shields and the reload the page and it works fine. I went to my online classroom and had to lower Brave Shields and reload the page. Just about any site “I” go to, I end up having to lower Brave Shields and then reload that page. I am not trying to sound like I am personally attacking you! It is Brave Shields and is there a General Setting I need to change or what do I need to do to stop the recurring cycle of “Brave Shields Up, lower Brave Shields, Report Site, Reload Page”? I find it is getting easier to go back to Firefox instead of just about constantly having to lowering Brave Shields and reload the page. Does that help clarify the situation or is there more information needed? Moreover, some of the other sites have said, “Javescript not installed or not working.” Could this be part of the problem? Or is this particular post going to suddenly vanish as well?
Well, there’s a few things that could be causing issues. The more descriptive of issues, the easier it is to know. Most of the settings you’d worry about is at brave://settings/shields. If you change settings at the lion symbol next to the URL/Address Bar, that usually only changes settings for that particular site.
Settings that can cause issues would be:
Blocking Scripts. This actually breaks most websites and only should be turned on as needed
Blocking ALL cookies, rather than Only cross-site
Turning Fingerprinting or Trackers & Ads Blocking to Aggressive rather than Standard.
Beyond that, if you’re using any Extensions, they can sometimes cause conflict. So testing where you open in New Private Window instead of your normal can test that out. If you can access things in a Private Window, then likely need to disable or remove certain extensions in your browser…if you’ve installed anything.
