Did the issue present with default Shields settings? (yes/no) Yes

Does the site function as expected when Shields are turned off? No

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

Does the site work as expected when using Chrome? Yes

Brave version (check About Brave): 1.25.72

Hey OkWes,

Strange to see such issues on a fresh install, but I’ve some things to ask.

  1. Do you use a VPN?
  2. Does the site work after restarting the page multiple times?
  3. Can you go to brave://extensions/ and check for any extensions.
  4. Have you tried resetting your Brave settings or making a new profile?

Hi Adrian,

Hitting reset settings fixed the issue. I guess importing my Chrome bookmarks / settings caused the issue.

Thanks for the help!

Good to hear. Hopefully you’ll not have any more issues.
