This has been a sudden issue for me. Everything worked fine a few days ago, but then suddenly everything from imgur began showing broken image logos. Today ebayimg followed suit.
To my knowledge I have changed nothing to cause this behaviour.
I am running Version 1.10.97 on Win10 and am up-to-date. I do run a number of extensions, but the problem persists with the extensions individually disabled and Brave restarted and in a private browsing session with no extensions enabled.
While I am connected via VPN normally, this behaviour persists when connected or disconnected via VPN. It also persists whether I am browsing through Pi-hole DNS or Google/Open DNS. The problem also persists with/without Brave Shields.
Tellingly, imgur/ebayimg and all other sites work fine when using Firefox or Edge. This problem seems to be localized to Brave. It also seems to be inconsistent: Sometimes ebayimg will load, and even imgur.com (via Reddit) worked for a couple hours yesterday before it re-broke itself.
I’m not seeing major reports of this from other users, so I’m guessing it’s something unique to my machine or configuration.
Shy of reinstalling and losing all of my preferences, does anyone have any suggestions for what might be the problem?
