When I use laptop in full screen mode, I don’t get any ads but if I quit full screen mode and use then I get ads regularly.
This method I tried in starting of January, before that brave was always on full screen mode and I didn’t receive any ads but one day as my tabs were restored after reboot and I didn’t use full screen mode, to my surprise I received ads. Then I tried it till 26th Jan and I received many ads, yesterday I changed it to full screen and I didn’t get any ads after changing it to full screen. Today for sometime I used full screen mode and I didn’t get any ads and as soon as I exited full screen, I got 2 ads in time frame of 15 mins. Please kindly look into this matter.

What OS/Brave version are you using?

* Brave 1.19.86 Chromium: 88.0.4324.96 (Official Build) (x86_64)
Revision 68dba2d8a0b149a1d3afac56fa74648032bcf46b-refs/branch-heads/4324@{#1784}
OS macOS Version 11.1 (Build 20C69)

Brave ads have never worked while watching fullscreen content unless there was a bug that was allowing it. The intended behavior is to not display ads over fullscreen content.

Oh okay, was it mentioned anywhere and I missed it ?

It was at one point but we’re re-working some docs to include more information and additional troubleshooting for users to self-diagnose.

Yeah, I made a feature request for a way to force the ads to appear in full screen mode (I have a small screen so I use fs a lot).

And I also explained this happened to other users in various post. It was almost 5 months ago so that would explain why you didn’t find anything :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:
