Brave seems to bypass my firewall

Hi guys.

I am having a weird problem with Brave. I am using the newest build and am on mojave 10.14.2

I am using hands off! firewall for mac and have created a rule to block both with a wildcard and without. When i try to open that site in safari or firefox now it wont resolve, this is also the case if i ping facebook from network utility. However no matter what i try, brave goes straight to the page and always opens it!

I have no idea what else to try, i have deleted all my browsing history in brave and also flushed my cache in terminal, brave still opens it.

Is there something im missing, like brave bypasses local dns resolution or something?

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
