Enable javascript on local files

Hey there. I like to be as private as I can while I’m browsing the internet so I’ve got my javascript turned off by default. Every time I visit a site that doesn’t appear to be working without scripts, I consider switching it on and continue browsing the internet uninterrupted. However, when I try to open local files, Brave Shields block all scripts without giving me the option to turn them back on (grey logo). Is there a reason for this? I’m using version 1.25.70 and Chromium 91.0.4472.77 right now. At the moment I’m relying on other browsers to open my local files.
