GIfs are getting blocked by Shield

I noticed this issue while browsing X(twitter) and the GIFs and some videos are being blocked by the Brave Shield. These same posts are visible or loaded when the shield is disabled.

Repro steps :

  1. Visit X(twitter), with the shield enabled
  2. Browser any trending topic and check if the gifs of the posts on the specific topic is loaded or not.
  3. Try disabling the shield and check if the GIFs or videos are loaded or not.

Expected result:
The GIFs and videos should be visible even if the Shield is enabled .

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Version 1.61.101 Chromium: 120.0.6099.71 (Official Build) (x86_64)

Additional Information:
The issue is noticed on some other websites which displays a GIF along with the post. But, X
(twitter) is the one where the issue is most happening.

I haven’t had this issue yet. If you see an example, would it be too much trouble to ask you to link to one of these posts?

Other thing I’d like to ask is what your Shields settings are like on Twitter? For example, mine is below:

Like I just checked and I was able to see these 2 playing:

Link to posts are and But then even is playing just fine.

Lastly, if you’re using extensions, can you try to disable them or test in private window to see if the same issue occurs?

Oh, actually…just saw there was another topic similar to this. Fanboynz had investigated and pushed out a fix.

So do try checking again, perhaps update at brave://components if necessary. I’m going to go ahead and close this topic for now. If you still have issues, please open up a new topic.

Thanks @babaYaga
