In addition to what @fanboynz said, which is very likely what is happening here, when you say that it fails immediately, have you waited long enough for the Brave-Onion browser to build the session?

It can take ten or more seconds to complete.

Yes, have tried waiting for it to load but it times out.

That seems to be the issue. Unsure why it only happens with that one site.
