Not adblocking immediately after install


I had a fresh install of Brave on a new machine, I visited YouTube and stuff, adblock not working, I thought Brave failed the most basic function, about to uninstall.

After a few minutes, adblocking is working.

Is Brave downloading the blocklist after install? It should’ve been packaged with the installer and updated later, so it can block ads immediately after install.
