Did the issue present with default Shields settings? (yes/no) yes

Does the site function as expected when Shields are turned off? yes

Is there a specific Shields configuration that causes the site to break? If so, tell us that configuration. (yes/no): no

Does the site work as expected when using Chrome? yes

Does this problem happen to you on one Website or on All?

In the Brave Icon, click there and deactivate, reload the page and then reactivate it and reload it again, check your browser configuration it may be that something has been misconfigured.

Try trying Anonymous Windows and Tor Window, that may be the problem.

Hi,
it happens on every website. I tried turning it off and on again but that didn’t work. It doesn’t work in private mode and the tor window says it’s not connected to tor
