Default states are:
Block: Ads/Trackers, 3rd Party Cookies, 3rd Party Fingerprinting Allow: Encrypt Connections (HTTPS), Scripts
yes
Where and how do the ads appear? (fill out below)
One Pop-up window opens on the first try to start the video, on 2nd try a about:blank window appears and video starts.
URL where ad was displayed:
https://openload.co/f/FFiSCaUzlKg/big_buck_bunny.mp4 (gets redirected to https://oladblock.me/f/FFiSCaUzlKg/big_buck_bunny.mp4 btw)
Screenshot of ad as it appears on the webpage:


1st pop-up is fullscreen. I resized the window. 2nd popup which appears after clicking the play button a 2nd time is always an about:blank one in a corner or even on my 2nd monitor.
Console Output (optional):

What Brave version/Build are you using? (See the About Brave page in the main menu)

Additional info:
Chrome with ublock origin blocks both popups and video starts immediately.

@Axo7L,
Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I have reproduced the issue on my end and see the blank window that appears. What’s interesting is that, while the pop-up window does appear, the actual ad/page content in that window is blocked.
I’ll file a web compat issue for this for the team to review.
