Brave shield doesn't prevent sites from opening new ads tabs

Description of the issue:
It seems that Brave Shield doesn’t prevent sites from opening new adverts tabs.
I am using the latest Brave version for Windows 10.
It happened to me, in two different sites. First site is movies online, when I clicked the play button inside the video player.
The other it is y2mate for downloading a youtube video as mp3

Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3. 4

  1. Go to https://www.y2mate.com/youtube/vyDTbJ4wenY
  2. Click mp3 to get it as mp3
  3. Click Download then wait for the process to complete
  4. Click the Download .mp3 button that will appear

That’s part of the reason I found it necessary also to use the uBlock Orgin extension.

I’ll implement a fix later today, thanks for the report

Give it 24-48hrs, update will stop the popup from being generated @andrd

Thank you! A suggestion I would like to see, is the tabs split. For example you could work on multi tabs at the same.
