This isn’t necessarily related to your issue but is my own curiosity…Any reason why you’re not updating your iOS? Current iOS is 16.2
I just tested on my iPhone and not seeing this happen, even with Shields on.
Yeah, you can’t create new profiles on iOS or Android. The advice @Kevin_cc mentioned wouldn’t be available. The only thing would be Private but that usually isn’t as helpful on these because we can’t run extensions either. Private Window or Guest Mode usually is to try to help rule out issues around extensions that might be causing problems, for the most part.
Let’s just try this.
Keep Shields on
Go to Settings → Brave Shields & Privacy → Content Filtering → enable toggle for Fanboy Annoyances List and uBlock Annoyances List
