As of a week or so ago when using Brave I started to see ads appear on youtube when I have been using Brave for years and haven’t seen a single one prior. Well I don’t see them per se I just get audio a blackscreen and the thing saying how long and a preview of next one that funny enough shows the image. I didn’t change any of the settings.
You should have Fanboy's Annoyances and uBlock Annoyances, as they will both help a lot.
This will eventually be a problem as scripts won’t always be able to work with older. But you should be good.
Big thing I have to ask, have you tried to Search Before Posting? Because there have been similar topics made over the past few weeks. Each one usually gets resolved just be people saying to go to brave://components and update Brave Ad Block Resources Library and all.
Also sometimes it can be an issue of cookies or ad extensions, which you could try if the above doesn’t help
Ok added those filters and restarted brave but still happening.
Yeah older computer so eventually will upgrade.
And yes I did search and commented about how I followed the steps on it but it didn’t work. The topic was closed and I was told to create another topic… um by you I think. But yes I did hit the update on brave ad block resources and well everything on components.
Did clear cookies and have no extensions but still getting the ads
Ah, looking at your history, I see 5 days ago you commented on someone else’s. And yeah, I closed the post because original person who had a problem said it was resolved. So figured different issue overall, even if similar, should have different topic. I see a lot of posts/topics, so don’t remember all of them.
Let me tag in @fanboynz to see if he has anything to add on that or what information he might need.
yeah sorry was kind of busy so didn’t get back all that quickly and well only found this forum from searching the problem so still getting used to it myself and wouldn’t figure you’d remember every response.
Sure thing. Still have chrome with adblock on so can use that for youtube… just kind of funny been basically since I got brave I haven’t seen any ads on it and now I’m seeing 1 almost every video (at least on music stuff) and had no idea they did so many now
Windows 7 is already not supported, and there are already many changes that won’t make it to the old last version supported on Win7, and it will keep breaking more and more, not getting new feature or fixes or changes or nothing.
Also, you don’t have to get a ‘new OS’, it is called Upgrade and it is free to upgrade from Win7 to Win10/Win11.
Upgrading will keep your files and applications and most settings.
This has been happening with me too, for over a month. I just checked components, as recommended. It says my ad block is up to date. 1.0.891.
I use Windows 7, which is an upgrade from what came on this laptop, I doubt this laptop could handle Windows 10.
