How do i UNBLOCK element previously blocked via selector?

I blocked an element on a webpage that i shouldn’t have. now, even i disable the brave shields completely, the element still stays hidden.

Right click on the page that you blocked an element for, go to the brave section, then click on clear CSS ruled for this site.


Thanks for your reply Ahmad, unfortunately that is the very first thing I have done.

this is brave on windows

Brave 1.19.86 Chromium: 88.0.4324.96 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Revision 68dba2d8a0b149a1d3afac56fa74648032bcf46b-refs/branch-heads/4324@{#1784}

Seriously, where is that filter list located? I tried to look in the profile folder with no success. I suspect it’s stored in binary form somewhere. …
i wish brave were more transparent and friendly with advanced users.

Hi, The built in remover does work, it’s widely used without issue. That said one way manual (unofficial) to remove it:

Always backup your profile before making changes.

  1. Download Astrogrep ( or use your preferred grep).
  2. Close all Brave browser windows
  3. Running Astrogrep and search for cosmeticFilterList in %userprofile%\appData\Local\BraveSoftware\Brave-Browser\
  4. Removing the 3 files it finds.
  5. Re-launch Brave, and the custom css will be removed (well all custom css removed)

I tested this, browser still launched and it removed my test css filter.
