Publishers showing up twice in rewards menu



Description of the issue:

Site shows up twice in the brave rewards page. The double entry also causes the percentages to not make sense

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.

Not sure. Seems to be random other than the fact that it is a youtube channel.

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):

Expected result:
Only one entry

Reproduces how often:

This was the first time I noticed it. It happened as shown in the screenshot and it also happened for itself

Brave Version(about:brave):

Version 0.58.18 Chromium: 71.0.3578.98 (Official Build) unknown (64-bit)

Additional Information:

This is on Manjaro. Which is known to have its issues with brave.


Thanks for pointing this out to us. Forwarding this to the Rewards team right now. Also cc @sriram for additional input.


Looks like it may be this issue:


Just curious, what is going to happen at the time donations will be made? How will rewards calculate the contributions if all the percentages are off?


We actually have a fix for this set to get pushed out today. Let me know if the issue is resolved after the update.

Release Channel update 0.58.21 is LIVE!

I have updated now. I haven’t noticed any additional double entries, but the previous entries still exist.


That is to say (for example) that Philly D still appears twice in your a-c table?


That is correct. A few others as well.


But removing one of the duplicates for any of these sites works, correct? When Brave is relaunched, the duplicate entries don’t remain, do they?


So removing duplicates had some unintended results. I was having a known issue where some sites could not be excluded from the rewards menu even after clicking “x”. This includes the duplicates. After removing the duplicates didn’t work I attempted to remove a non-duplicate site. That site was removed, but the entire list got rearranged. Duplicates are still present, but almost every site including the duplicates is now showing 0%. I will also note again that this is on Manjaro. I loaded up windows where I also have brave installed and am not having the duplicates issue and am seemingly able to remove any site I want. Curious if it is possible to delete the entire list and start new? My contribution date is stuck on 12/11/18 so the sites never reset monthly.


Thanks for the info. Not sure about deleting the entire list (I believe there’s a feature request open for this right now) by way of option or setting. You could create a fresh profile and start from scratch (with respect to your Rewards list).

Hold off for just a bit so I can inform the Rewards team about this and see if they have any suggestions.


Just an update on this. The rewards list randomly emptied itself. So its essentially a clean list now with new sites being added. The only difference now is that all the sites are stuck at 0% and do not change no matter how long I am on the page.

EDIT: The contribution date seems to have fixed itself as well. Now showing 2/19/2019
