HELP Brave not showing twitter profile images and tweet images/videos


I swtiched to Brave, and Ive been experiencing issues with certain websites not loading any images. For example, with YouTube, no video thumbnails or profile images were being shown until I turned off Hardware Acceleration. This does not work for my Twitter image problems though. I’ve looked up other disucssion posts and followed many various steps, but to no avail. I would be happy to provide screenshots below. Here is one.

Hello @EthanGorham

Thank you for reaching us and I’m sorry to hear you are going through this. Could you kindly try to use a private tab to see if the issue persist? Additionally, have you updated to the latest Brave version?

Be waiting for your response!


Unfortunately, I cannot do either. I have disabled Private Browsing via the Windows regedit program, and I cannot update to the latest version, as I am using Windows 7.

I understand if this complicates this inquiry. I can confirm that my school computer that has Windows 11 works fine when I disable Hardware Acceleration (running on the altest version of Brave as well).

If you don’t wish to test this in a private tab, you can test in a Guest Window via the ☰ menu. If the issue doesn’t reproduce in that context, it may be that an extension is involved.

I guess I never considered the extensions to be the cause of my issues. I come from Chrome so I use the same extensions, but I did do a little bit of updating to some of the AdGuard settings. Ill update this thread if I resolve the issue. Thanks everyone.
