Description of the issue:

Brave not block ads on any website. I have tried on default settings and aggressive. No change.

I had to power reset my laptop and Brave shut down unexpectedly, since then no matter what I do I keep seeing ads. Targeted ones on youtube and I’m seeing them in my email as well.

I’ve tried restarting Brave but to no avail.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.

Opens website. Ads

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):


Expected result:

Ads should block

Reproduces how often:

All the time

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):

Windows 10. Latest Brave

Additional Information:

Can you please go to About Brave and tell me the exact version you’re using? Additionally, can you go to brave://components and tell me what version of the Brave Ad Block Updater you’re using currently?


It looks like the brave ad blocker wasn’t updated on brave://components. Updating it has solved the issue, not sure why it didn’t update automatically or potentially reverted?

Thanks for the quick response
