I cannot skip ANY ads on youtube using Brave anymore. I don't want to go back to Firefox. Help please


Description of the issue:
When I go to youtube, I have to watch these long 2 minute ads and there is never a skip ad button. This just started happening out of the blue. I have the most recent version of brave. I am using a macbook.

Exact URL of the website in question:
youtube.com

Screenshot of the ad as it appears in Brave
Did the issue present with default Shields settings? (yes/no)

Does the site function as expected when Shields are turned off?
No, I still can’t skip ads.

Is there a specific Shields configuration that causes the site to break? If so, tell us that configuration. (yes/no):

Does the site work as expected when using Chrome?

Brave version (check About Brave):

Version 1.0.1 Chromium: 78.0.3904.108 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Added this thread as a +1 to the issue as well :+1:

Ok so after reading that long github thread it looks like there actually is no fix. Goodbye Brave, you guys tried. Back to Firefox.
