Enter Reader Mode is grayed out...unless I turn off Shields

Description of the issue:

View > Enter Reader Mode is grayed out on all sites unless I turn off Shields. Am I missing something here?

How can this issue be reproduced?

As above

Brave Version( check About Brave):

Version 1.26.74 Chromium: 91.0.4472.124

Hey @100WattWalrus !

Can you share which websites you experience this on?

Thank you!


Many sites, @GreenBananaPorridge. Examples:



Also lots of sites where Enter Reader Mode doesn’t work at all in Brave, but does work in other browsers, e.g. Safari:

Currently, that reader mode does have any specific Brave function, it is chrome’s default reader. This may be the reason for conflict with using Shields.


Roger that. Hope it’s on your roadmap to address.
