    I try to post a new message on Hootsuite. I get an error message “An unexpected error occured loading composer”


Hi @RacertripsLLC,

Can you share your shield setting (Brave icon at upper right)?

Additionally, you can try adjusting your shields setting. Start from Fingerprinting Protection, Cookies, and so on to see which setting is broke this.


I have shields set to block ads, block 3rd party cookies, and block 3rd party fingerprinting. HTTPS everywhere and Block phishing/malware are swtcthed on.



As @eljuno said, this is most likely an issue with Brave’s Shields blocking some element required on screen. To confirm this, first turn your Shields off. If the page reloads and displays normally then we know this is a Shields issue (this is often the first step one should take when they encounter a site error).

From there, you can isolate which Shields setting is causing the issue, disable it (if desired) but leave shields up so you and your data are still being protected.

Hope this helps!
