Google ads not blocked

Description of the issue:
I’m seeing google ads with brave ad blocker enabled

How can this issue be reproduced?
Search for something on google which has ads in it’s results

Expected result:
Ads are blocked / hidden

Brave Version (Both):
[Version 1.5.108 Chromium: 80.0.3987.132]
[Version 1.4.96 Chromium: 80.0.3987.132]

These ads are first-party ads (Google ads on Google) and therefore considered “acceptable ads”.
If you wish to block these, it would be smart to consider an (additional, possibly systemwide) ad blocker.
There are many options, depending on your wishes, but some good tools you might want to consider are uBlock Origin and Adguard.
Keep away from Ghostery or Adblock Plus, since those have privacy concerns.

Those ads you see on Google are first party ads. They are not blocked by default.
See this topic on blocking first part ads:

But this would essentially eliminate all the performance gains from the brave ad block, wouldn’t it?
