Broken site - can't add item to shopping cart

Description of the issue:

The online grocery store I’m using doesn’t work correctly with Brave. When I click an item to add it to the cart, the operation hangs.

EDIT: This issue appear in the beta version only, not in the official version.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.

  1. Log in to
  2. Select an item
  3. Click “Buy”.

Since this requires an account it’s not that easy for the developers to troubleshoot, but I’ll do my best to assist.

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):

The operation to add the item to the cart hangs.

Expected result:

The item is added to the shopping cart.

Reproduces how often:


Brave Version(about:brave):

Version 0.59.21 Chromium: 72.0.3626.28 (Official Build) beta (64-bit)

Reproducible on current live release (yes/no):

Yes, on beta.

Additional Information:

When I click “Buy” on the item to add it to the shopping cart, I see this message in the console:

Might it be that Brave is blocking some traffic, causing the Browser not to get the data it needs (maybe an authentication token) to include in the POST call?

If I’m not mistaken, it should say here if it appears in the release channel (the “normal” Brave). Errors can occur in the beta. If this is only the case in the beta, please use the following link:

Hi, to get back to your problem: It may also be that it’s the website owner who may not support Brave. Do you have the same problem with Google Chrome (please use exactly this browser to check, because it uses the same framework, Chromium :wink: )

Thanks for getting back go to. I just tested on Google Chrome Version 71.0.3578.98 (Official Build) (64-bit), still on Ubuntu Budgie Linux, and the bug is not present there.

I haven’t tested the “normal” Brave, just the beta version. Should we move this thread over to the, as you suggested?

Hi, it would be great if you could try the release channel version. If it doesn’t appear in the release version, you should switch to the beta section.

I installed the official build (Version 0.58.21 Chromium: 71.0.3578.98 (Official Build) (64-bit)), and that version doesn’t have the reported bug.

Then please use the Beta Forum for this bug. :slight_smile:

Done. Moved the thread to Beta support.
