Question about Java Script and Script Blocking (Brave Shields)

Hi, Brave Community

Description of the issue:
I have an issue regarding Brave Shields specifically the function “Block Scripts”. Recently, I’ve wanted to sign in to Google account in Brave browser and the site showed me this:
“The browser you’re using doesn’t support JavaScript, or has JavaScript turned off”
And also when I’ve tried using Deepl for translation, it wasn’t responding until I’ve turned off the “Block Scripts”.

Expected result:
I have been using Brave as a default browser for more than 3 years with my shields on and I’ve never experienced such problems before. I don’t understand why this is happening now. Can someone please explain me why?
Is this because of the new updates? If I keep the “Block Scripts” shield turned down all the time, would that affect my privacy? Does this mean that Brave isn’t as private and secure as it used to be?

Thank you for your answers in advance
