Gmail ads no longer blocked

Description of the issue:
Since today, ads in Gmail webmail are back when I use Brave browser.

Exact URL of the website in question:

Screenshot of the ad as it appears in Brave

Did the issue present with default Shields settings? (yes/no)

Does the site function as expected when Shields are turned off?

Is there a specific Shields configuration that causes the site to break? If so, tell us that configuration. (yes/no):

Does the site work as expected when using Chrome?

Brave version (check About Brave):
1.31.91 Chromium: 95.0.4638.69 (Build officiel) (64 bits)

Try using Aggressive mode in shields @themen

I’m pretty sure those are emails sent to your inbox, I don’t think those are ads that the browser can block

No no, they are real ads in Gmail. It’s not emails. I can’t reply to them, it’s displaying ads if I click on it. I think you don’t know what Gmail ads are.
The « Annonce » in green means it’s ads inserted by Gmail.


I will try agressive mode tomorrow. But something has changed because I have not changed any field settings and I never had the ads with Brave.

Gotcha, I can’t read that language so I didn’t know what that word meant. Good luck fixing this! :slight_smile:

Aggressive mode works.


Aggressive mode is not working.

Interesting. I see something similar in Yahoo mail lately.

It’s an arms race. I expect Brave’s block list needs some new filters.
