Brave Version: |Brave|0.22.714|
|OS Release|4.10.0-38-generic|
|Update Channel|Release|
|OS Architecture|x64|
|OS Platform|Linux|
|Brave Sync|v1.4.2|

security/privacy settings: only use HTTPS. Everything else coookies fingerprinting etc etc wide open.

how to reproduce: go to Reddit and try to sign up. Cannot invoke the CAPTUA (a google script)

are you sure it’s Brave?: Yes I signed up using the same info from the same machine using a different browser

anything else? Yes. Google hates you and Reddit hates you too. Sorry.


Hi @cowardlylion,

Did you have Site isolation enabled in Preferences/Settings > Security? Having that setting enabled may cause an issue with CAPTCHA.



Indeed I did. Also I will file a report on the following. Copy and paste from Brave TO Brave and the system clipboard seems to be broken on Linux Mint Sylvia (all the same as the previous bug report).

I will try this again with the new setting you recommend (I can see how it might be a factor) and file a report if it’s not fixed.

Ahh no wait … stop the presses… that was also a side effect of this setting.

OK I get it.

Thank you so much !
