Same fingerprint ID generated even if 'Block Fingerprinting' is enabled

Description of the issue:
Websites create the same fingerprint ID even though ‘Block Fingerprinting’ is set to Standard or Strict.
However if the ‘Font Fingerprint Defender’ extension is installed, a different fingerprint ID is generated every time a webpage is refreshed, which is what I would expect.

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

  1. Switch on Block Fingerprinting under Settings > Shields (either Standard or Strict)
  2. Go to
  3. Select any of the four fingerprint tools (Font, Canvas, WebGL or Audio)
  4. Note the value of the displayed Fingerprint ID
  5. Click refresh (or close tab and repeat steps) and compare with the ‘new’ Fingerprint ID
  6. Install and activate the ‘Font Fingerprint Defender’ extension
  7. Repeat steps 2-5 (testing with Font option). Now the fingerprint ID changes each time

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
Same fingerprint ID

Expected result:
Different fingerprint ids when refresh the page

Reproduces how often:
When Block Fingerprinting is switched on (Standard/Strict)

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):
