Brave not updating Plex metadata

When I login to my Plex Media Server (PMS) and make changes to the Metadata, like Posters, or new Movies or TV Shows are added I am not seeing them in Brave unless I refresh the page (F5).

Chrome and Firefox automatically update without refreshing the page.

Is there a setting that needs to be changed.

BTW - Brave Shields are OFF for this site.


Have you tried with extensions disabled, or in a Private window, or a new profile?

Just tried and same result with extensions disabled. Works as expected in Private Window.

So why does it work in a Private Window?


Here’s a video of it working in Chrome as I change the poster for a Movie.

First of all – Plex Media looks pretty cool, going to have to check that out myself, so thanks for that! :slight_smile:

As for the issue I’m not exactly sure, but seems like some sort of caching issue if it’s not your extensions. I’m wondering if clearing data for the site will do the trick, so try visiting the site, then click the “lock” icon in the address bar, then Site settings --> Clear data and refresh the page and test to see if the behavior has changed at all.


That seems to have done the trick, thank you very much.
