Disabling Upgrade to HTTPS doesn't work and Brave still forces all sites to https

Description of the issue:
I have disabled Upgrade connections to HTTPS in Brave, but that appears to be ignored. I run a number of local web apps that do not have SSL enabled, and aren’t exposed through my firewall, and don’t need it. I cannot reach because Brave keeps flipping the connection over to https even though I have disabled that behavior.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Open Brave Shields and disable ‘Upgrade connections to HTTPS’
  2. Navigate to a site that still supports normal http traffic (non-ssl). This may be hard to do considering almost all sites force https now. You may need to setup a simple web application locally to get a http connection. I’ve been unable to find a production facing website that still supports plain old http (it’s a good thing really)

Expected result:
The expected result is the connection remains http, and is not switched to https.

Brave Version( check About Brave):
1.29.79

Additional Information:
Based on past post history, this seems to regress every so often. The most recent occurrence of this regression and subsequent fix was: Disabling "Upgrade connections to HTTPS" is not working

I had this same issue about a year ago. This bug was fixed at that time but it looks like the error is back.
