Rewards not showing even with new profile


I’ll try and be brief and use my testing repro steps:

  • rewards are working fine
  • back-up “” folder from windows
  • reinstall windows
  • restore “” folder from back-up
  • ads not showing
  • read the last section of Rewards Help " "
  • cool, no problem. I reset the wallet
  • ads still don’t show
  • nuclear option: uninstall Brave and delete everything from registry and AppData
  • try to restore wallet; passphrase no longer works if you reset the wallet…
  • create new wallet; link it with Gemini = all good
  • still no ads

Could someone please help with this?
P.S.: will tab auto-resize be a thing? 'Been using brave:/flags as a workaround for the past two years


Could someone please help with this? If there is a general thread or something consolidating all of these issues, I did not see it.

Thank you
