click menu dots on https://[*.] and select remove

Every time

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):
Version 1.38.119 Chromium: 101.0.4951.67 (Official Build) (x86_64)

Additional Information:


Visit a website that includes the source.

Set the site-specific Shields (Lion icon) panel setting to UP (aka ON - in other words you need the site-specific Shields ENABLED).

And, Block third-party cookies.

Do not disturb that Brave Browser window.

In a Brave Browser > New Window, go to: brave://settings/cookies

Focus on the cookies source that is your issue, and the Trash can button should work.

Brave developers at GitHub are aware of the issue. But I am uncertain of when a fix will exist in a future release of Brave Browser.


This is a bug and also appears in chrome. You solve it and it reappears again.
As I am writing this, I checked in Sites that can always use cookies it is empty, but a few days ago a list of sites were there.
