MEGAsync desktop app doesn't intercept download request from mega.nz while the shield is turned on

Description of the issue:

MEGAsync desktop app (official mega.nz app) doesn’t intercept user download request from mega.nz correctly (or at all I’d say), while the shield is turned on. Both normal and aggressive shield modes block one tracker only - http://127.0.0.1:6341/. Turning off the shield solves the issue. Is it a bug or normal behaviour?

How can this issue be reproduced?

Expected result:

MEGAsync desktop app intercepts my download requests made on mega.nz, while ad and tracking protection (the shield) is turned on in Brave browser.

Brave Version( check About Brave):

Wersja 1.25.68 Chromium: 91.0.4472.77 (Oficjalna wersja) (64-bitowa).

Additional Information:

Windows 10 21H1 x64, MEGAsync 4.4.0.

We block localhost requests from third-parties. Try add the following: @@||127.0.0.1$domain=mega.nz into brave://adblock, then refresh the page
