General Adblock settings get ignored

Description of the issue: General Adblock settings get ignored

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Go to settings and disable adblock
  2. Open any website

Expected result: Newly opened website should have the Brave shields activated but adblocking should remain disabled.

Actual result: Adblock is active when you tap on the shields icon.

Brave Version( check About Brave): 1.5.131 German locale

Mobile Device details: Different devices running Android 5 and 9

Additional Information: See attached screenshots. I’m pretty sure I have seen this bug before. Currently there is no way to show ads by default on any websites because settings will get ignored.


Seems like it’s linked to this:

In the settings, could you please try to check and uncheck adblock and see if that changes something?

Stup*id me, thanks @MaximeJ, you were exactly right. Enabling and disabling the settings again solved the issue. No idea why I haven’t thought of this before.

Great :slight_smile: You’re welcome
By the way, until it’s fixed, you’ll have to do that again if you clear your browsing data.
