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

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

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

Does the site work as expected when using Chrome? N.A.

Nvm, I just saw this reply:

Google Ads on Google.com are 1st Party Ads, so they aren’t blocked under default Shield settings I believe.

On desktop, Turning on Aggressive mode in Shields will filter google ads. Just not an option in Android/IOS just yet
