This was what was wrong. I had a custom
/etc/hosts file that blocked ads. On this list was
analytics.google.com. Removing this solved the issue. It was confusing because some browsers did not respect the
/etc/hosts file and implemented some kind of internal browser DNS to get around it. These browsers included Thorium, Firefox, etc. Brave, Chrome, Vivaldi respected the
/etc/hosts file and that is why
analytics.google.com wasn’t working
