Page Missing when it exists

Description of the issue:
Some websites show that the website is missing even though there is no 404 on it.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Go to
  2. I show 404 or the page is missing at the top when it’s not.

Expected result:
Not show it’s missing when there is obviously a page there.

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Version 1.18.77 Chromium: 87.0.4280.101 (Official Build) (arm64)

Additional Information:
I have attached a screenshot.

Sorry for the double image post.

I don’t see the message on my end when I visit that page:

Can you try clearing the cache/site data for the site (lock icon in the address bar Site settings --> Clear data) and then see if the 404 message disappears?

Unfortunately, after doing this, it still shows.

Can you try creating a new temp browser profile and see if the message appears when you visit the site in the new profile as well?

It still shows up in the new profile.

I should note this is not the only website I have noticed it on. It does this on other websites. This is the one that just I am showing as an example.

Well that is interesting…I’ll reach out to some team members about this. Would you mind providing some additional examples?

Also, can you try going to Settings --> Help Tips (scroll all the way down) and toggle the Show Wayback Machine prompt on 404 pages “off” and tell me if the notification still appears?

If I find other examples during my browsing, I will. Unfortunately I didn’t think about reporting it until now.

And yes. I’ll do that now.

It does go away when turning that off.

If you’d like, you can toggle it back on and check to see if it still shows the same behavior?

Yep. I tried that afterward and it does have the same behavior.

Thank you for confirming. I’ll inform the team of the behavior so they can review it. Until then, I hope keeping the option toggled off is okay.

Nah. I’ll keep it on so I can report which pages are causing issues. But thank you for giving me a way to turn it off :slight_smile:


@Mattches I found at least one. I’m sorry about leaving this. I haven’t had time to submit any more of them. But one for me at least is It’s used to setup Site Analytics and other things with Wordpress.
