I am having a strange issue with Brave Shields not working correctly with Youtube.
Normally i could close Youtube and/or Brave and come back later already logged in and never with any ads or cookie consent splash-screen.
Now when i open Youtube i see the cookie consent form and ads in a logged out state.
Once i click ‘Reject All’ on the cookie consent form to get that out of the way it is as if i am a new user, logged-out and ads are enabled.
The strange bit is that if i then click on Brave Shields next to the address bar and toggle it off and on in the drop-down-menu the page reloads and i am instantly back to (what used to be) the usual logged-in state with no ads.
I have cleared cache and removed cookies as suggested for Youtube ad malfunction elsewhere and this seems to resolve the issue for one session only then i am back to having to disable and enable Brave Shields again.
I am using Linux (Ubuntu MATE 22.10 Kinetik Kudu) and Brave Browser v1.45.123
If anyone knows how i can sort this out and get it back to always auto-logging-in with no ads i’d really appreciate some advice.
