Perhaps @sampson could answer this because I raised a question that was similar but that time it was related to the revealing of the browser identity.
Do we have to fiddle about with the Shields icon every time?
This particular domain site compared to the others listed below - namecheap.com becomes completely dysfunctional. I raise this topic because it used to also happen with protonmail.com as well but no longer does. I know toggling the fingerprinting protection fixes this but the reason for blocking doesn’t make much sense.
Sticking to the dysfunctionality bit, Luke told me that ‘Regarding YouTube ‘html5: video file not found’ This issue is being investigated.’ which is good to know but was just wondering as I came across this issue, when something doesn’t work, couldn’t Brave come up with a feature not exactly like EFF’s Privacy Badger but something similar where by Brave intelligently recognises what is breaking a site and once toggled in ‘Ad & Track’ controls, it refreshes to assume whether it fixed it or not. I say this because currently you have to turn off shield completely to make it functional again, it would also may go a long way in the number of topics being issued related to something similar like Leaving shields turned on breaks MyPoints.com.
I hope you don’t think I’m contradicting myself here with the above statement.
