Brave shield update


There used to be a filtering option in the “Block script” menu that allowed us to select which script to block or allow, resulting in a tricky but successful combination of allow/block leading to a no-ad experience on the french website

Since the last update, it seems like I’m unable to have this menu, leading to a lot of terribly annoying ads.
Is there any option in the developer tools or anywhere to enable this option again?
I tried many different combination of blocks/allowances with no luck.

Version: 1.39.122 on Fedora 30.
