@adrian.mueller, @Bobi, @proton1,
Apologies for the late reply. Before we jump into troubleshooting, @adrian.mueller – I’d like to confirm that everyone is using the most up-to-date release (v0.62.50 at the time of writing this) to make sure we’re all on the same page.
I am using www.web.de and am logged in to my account there. I get Youtube Emails and when I click them I get the 403.
I do Mint 19 and have tried the newest Brave beta as well as the updated Brave 0.62.5
(Version 0.62.50 Chromium: 73.0.3683.86 (Offizieller Build) (64-Bit))
I now realized, it works if I click the link, wait for the 403, click in the webTOyoutube-URL and hit enter again. I then get a web.de notice, I leave web.de and must confirm, and then get to the linked url.
So it works, if i enter the popped up link-url and hit enter again.
There is nothing in the settings I can do to improve this. I tried shutting all security for web.de of as well as other features that could effect this, imo.
EDIT: Here how it looks:
1: clicking youtube links from within the email-provider gets this 403 error
Thank you for bumping this issue – sorry for the delay. No update on this yet but I just made some noise about it internally. Should hopefully have more information soon.
Thank you for your patience and all the provided data, everyone’s reporting/notes are very useful.
I am in the US, and just installed Brave (version 64.77). I use GMX email as one of my main personal email accounts, and I have the same issue described in this thread. If I click on any link in any email in GMX I get “Oops, Something Went Wrong. Error code 403”. I tried the couple suggestions described here, but nothing fixes the problem. This error does not occur with any other browser I have been using, so is there something else I should try in Brave? Thanks is advance for any help.
Thanks. That did work. However, as you have pointed out, you would not want to leave the global setting in the Allow All position. That would defeat the purpose of a browser like Brave. So, now it is going to be very inconvenient to have to change settings every time I want to log into GMX. Is anyone working on a fix for this?
To confirm, with Global Shields at their defaults, if you’re logged in and on GMX, if you open the Shields panel and disable the Ads and trackers option (specifically – not Shields down), does GMX still throw the same error?
Yes. If I am in GMX and I just change settings, without Allowing Cookies Globally, the error comes up every time. Changing the Global Settings to allow cookies is the only fix I have found at this point.
Alright, well that’s just about enough of that – @BraveNew@proton1. We’re all on the same team here and a team functions best when they work together. Any more of this high-school-AOL-Chatroom-era flexing and you’ll be silenced without a second thought.
It was stated that you would need to change the Global Shields settings in order for this to work – this is not the same as Shields down. We have some useful documentation on Shields that I recommend you look through for a better understanding of how Shields work and how to use them when browsing:
For me would “Shields down at this site” be an option. I use webDe only for things allowed to be tracked. Disabling all shields on all sites, im absolutely with @ThePhoenix on this, would kind of defeat the purpose of a browser like Brave.
So this is where i stand. The issue is not solved. And my general goal with barfing into this thread every now and again is, to have an open thread that discribes the issue.
