Constant "There is a new version of Google News" in Brave constantly says there is a new version when there isn’t one.

Simply go to The popup will eventually display

I expected it not to keep telling me there was a new version when there wasn’t one.

Ubuntu 20.04, Brave
Version 1.22.45 Chromium: 89.0.4389.58 (Official Build) beta (64-bit)

This used to happen a lot to me and others when somebody finally figured out that it was uBlock Origin that was somehow causing Google News to mistakenly think there was a new version of Google News. Turning off Ublock Origin fixed this problem for a while. Then I moved to Brave.

Now it’s happening again under Brave and although I have disabled Ublock Origin for Google News it still happens. I suspect it might be some of the additional blockers, tracking blocking or whatever that Brave does internally that is still causing this problem. I’d like it fixed or at least the ability to turn it off, like I turned off Ublock Origin.
