This is a continuation of Articles from medium.com are missing embedded content
First, let me say that I’m a bit dissatisfied that my issue was closed prematurely with ONE single report of things supposedly working, without any further investigation into that users report…
I did a play store report, was bounced here and had to sign up… I invest my time to investigate and reduce the error space and then I’m blatantly ignored, so thanks…
Here’s some stuff I was planning to write, only to find my issue closed…
Anyway, I tracked down the issue for you. It’s two-fold:
- Fingerprint protection breaks embedded content (e.g. images, also others) on Medium posts, possibly only posts that don’t originate from medium.com, but this is unconfirmed
- Toggling fingerprint protection in the Brave panel or settings does not work when
Settings > Privacy > Fingerprint Protectionhas been enabled previously
To expand on #2, disabling
Fingerprint Protection in settings requires opening a new tab for the setting to be disabled (at least only then do the medium resources load). So this made tracking this issue hard, no amount of toggling helped because I had not opened a new tab.
PS. The reason I was able to track this down was that fingerprint protection broke the site on desktop (macOS) Brave as well. Difference being that toggling worked there.
