Brave suddenly stopped blocking pop up ads on animixplay. (On iOS)

Description of the issue:
For the past two days brave hasn’t been blocking pop up ads on animixplay. This was never an issue before and none of my settings were changed. I am watching on a iPad.

Exact URL of the website in question:

Did the issue present with default Shields settings? (yes/no)
Does the site function as expected when Shields are turned off?
Is there a specific Shields configuration that causes the site to break? If so, tell us that configuration. (yes/no):
Does the site work as expected when using Chrome?
Brave version (check About Brave):

iOS . . . Do you have

  • ‘Private Browsing Only’ Enabled ?

  • ‘Block Popups’ Enabled ?

Yes they are both enabled


Guessing, that the Ad-Blocking component for Brave Browser iOS, was updated.

And, might need work @fanboynz ?

An update for ios will go out, not sure if it’ll fix all popups (give it 48hrs). There is so many randomised adservers on various sites we can’t cover on ios.

When we get cosmetic filtering in ios it should help improve the popup issues
