Cookie consent is not blocked

i didn’t get the ask for enabling the feature.

i just enabled that list.

Wait, I take that back. I just showed where I have Fanboy Annoyances List active but not Easylist. Then when I just navigated there, I saw what you saw when I clicked the link.

That’s using Nightly, version 1.47.36. Let me try to toy with things a bit here and see if any particular changes help.

If someone can post a screenshot (right click inspect) of the cookie item. It’ll help

This what you’re looking for or need something else @fanboynz?

is this mechanism to just block the CSS/HTML???

how is this going to stop them from pushing the cookie?

@TDK Check out topic where was discussed a bit and links provided. "Tired of cookie consent notices?" = no consent?

Short answer is with Shields active, Brave blocks cookies by default, only allowing necessary 1st party cookies. If you blocked all cookies, you’d break sites and not be able to do much of anything.

i see, so this popup is just a residue.


Pretty much. I do need to elaborate on one thing a bit more when I say default. Like I said, it’s in general. Just keep in mind you are able to “whitelist” cookies for websites and all. SO if you add it to Always Allow Cookies then it will override it and they can add.

You can see websites you’ve enabled cookies for at brave://settings/cookies, as well as sites you’ve chosen NOT to allow.

If you turn off Shields on a site, it will usually put that site on “always allowed.” In order to remove it, you’ll have to go back to that site and activate Shields on it (via the lion icon thing on the address bar) or you have to Block in the options on hamburger menu (three dots) on the website. I just actually had to do that for https://[*.] as not sure where that came from. Best way to avoid that is not to turn off Shields on websites. (I do that for helping people with troubleshooting sometimes, so can get stuck with those things)

And FYI, in case you might get confused with it like I did in the past. The Github shown by @fanboynz is just them recording the issue and having it slated to be fixed. Not sure how long it will take, but often within 24 hours it should roll out I think.


@fanboynz here is another one on

I don’t think this feature is being advertised correctly and is misleading.
Sounds like a manual effort than an actual integration in the browser.

This is because some sites would break if this feature is used when on them.

so why advertise it then as the “cookie consent” blocker?

I have been using it in brave for 7-8 months and before in UBO and it does what it advertises on 99% sites I come across.

On small sites or newly developed sites, users might see a cookie pop-up but eventually it is also blocked.

From brave://adblock also UBO annoyance list and Fanboy social list.

Because it’s blocking the cookie consent from occurring. Of course, there’s no way to do this 100% without breaking sites. So when people find sites that aren’t having them blocked, it has to be reported and adjusted.

Admittedly, they don’t seem to have built as strong a list for the filter as they should have before it was open to everyone, but it’s being improved through user feedback. In a way, this is more efficient for those who can be patient and contribute to the list such as you’ve done here.

Its list based, and it evolves over time. new cookie consents are added, fixes land daily. Not every consent can be fixed, but covering 95% cookie messages is no easy feat.

How does it compare?

fair enough. are you ok with me reporting anything that i run across or would that be an annoyance?

Sure, report issues or anything.
