Description of the issue
-Can’t sign in to Bing on Brave Browser (works on other browsers). It loops back to the main page and eventually gives an error saying too many sign-in attempts.
Exact URL of the website in question
Did the issue present with default Shields settings? [Default states are: Block: Ads/Trackers, 3rd Party Cookies, 3rd Party Fingerprinting Allow: Encrypt Connections enabled (HTTPS), Scripts] (yes/no)
Does the site function as expected when Shields are turned off? (yes/no)
Is there a specific Shields configuration that causes the site to break? If so, tell us that configuration. (yes/no)
Does the site function as expected when using Chrome? (yes/no)
What Operating System and Brave version/Build are you using when you encounter the issue?(See the About Brave page in the main menu)
-Version 0.66.100 Chromium: 75.0.3770.142 (Official Build) (64-bit)
I could reproduce your issue. I think the reason is this:
If you login to bing.com you are being redirected to login.live.com, which will give you your “login-cookie”. But because the domain names are not the same, it is treated as a 3rd-party cookie and will be blocked.
This solution worked for me:
Great troubleshooting, again. I think something must have changed in recent updates, because this exact set of steps used to work, then stopped working for quite some time, but now works again. I was able to login to Bing using the steps you noted above – it’s important to highlight set 7 above:
Setting cookies to Allow all on Bing.com will not persist to the login page – users will have to change the cookie setting once again on the sign-in page. After that, authentication should resume as intended.
