EDIT: I recommend subscribing to the bug report of this issue in the Brave github page for updates:
Description of the issue:
brave://settings/cookies, when I try to remove one of the sites listed in there, either by the ‘remove’ menu item or the trash can button, it doesn’t get removed. The UI gives no notification on why the site can’t be removed.
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
https://accounts.google.comeither by going to '⋮ (‘more actions’ button)’ → ‘remove’ or the trash can button. Notice that it doesn’t get removed. The UI gives no notification on why the site can’t be removed.
Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
Animated GIF screen capture of the settings UI when trying to remove sites:
That the sites be removed once I click on ‘remove’ or the trash icon. If it can’t be removed, at least give me a notification why, and instructions on how to allow removal.
Reproduces how often:
Operating System and Brave Version(See the
About Brave page in the main menu):
Brave shields enabled: Trackers & ads blocking (Standard), Cookie blocking (cross-site / third-party cookies blocked) and Fingerprinting blocking (standard). This still happens even if Trackers & ads blocking is disabled.
I’ve tried disabling Brave shields for the specific affected sites and globally, reenabling Brave shields for the affected sites and globally, removing all cookies for the affected sites (lock icon → cookies → remove each cookie), going to each of the affected site’s settings (lock icon) → clear data & reset permissions, but the issue persists. I’ve also tried going to '⋮ (‘more actions’ button)’ → ‘Clear on exit’ but that just moves the sites to another category in the settings: ‘Always clear cookies when windows are closed’ - where they are still unremovable (same issue like in the GIF screen capture I included in my post)
