Quora digest links stopped working

Description of the issue:
Links to Quora from my daily digest have stopped working. When I click a link from my email, which leads to a Quora answer I get redirected twice and end up on a quora page stating: “Something went wrong”. There is a 302 and a 307 redirect.

This doesn’t happen on any of my other browsers: Chrome, Firefox, Safari.

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

Click one of these links:


Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):

Expected result:

I expect to see the actual answer on quora.

Reproduces how often:

This happens 95% of the times I click any link in my quora digest emails. Some links work very rarely, but after I click them again they stop working and I get the same “Something went wrong” page.

Brave Version(about:brave):
Version 0.56.12 Chromium: 70.0.3538.77 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Reproducible on current live release (yes/no):

Additional Information:
I disabled the Brave shield for Quora and I get the same result.
I disabled all my extensions and I get the same result.

The Quora site still works fine when browsing it directly.

Because quora is a site which I read a few times daily, it makes up for a big part of my browsing experience, so this is more than just a little annoyance for me. The current version of Google Chrome does not have this bug.

This seems to have been solved either by a Brave update or by Quora.
It seems to work now, so this topic can be closed.
