I have been using Brave since 2021 and it has successfully blocked all Youtube ads. Starting yesterday, Youtube starting to show me every possible ad it could. I have received pre-roll ads, ads during the video, and ads on the side of the video. I tried to solve the problem myself but it ends up impacting the browser and signing me out of my Google accounts. I turned my computer on and off again, made sure I had the latest version of Brave installed, cleared all my cookies, blocked cookies from Youtube (which ended up bricking the site and showing the Youtube “oops” message whenever I signed in), and changed my setting to block ads agressively. I would like to know how to make sure Youtube blocks ads:
The Issue continued to persist even with default and agressive ad blocking settings
Yes, the site functions as expected when shield are turned off
Yes, when you tell the site to block scripts it breaks, but otherwise the site runs normally with the addition of annoying ads
The site functions with ads using chrome
v1.49.132 is th version of Brave I am on
