Sites report wrong shield settings

Description of the issue:
i always choose to clear on exit everything for all time that lead that the shield settings be standard for both fingerprint and tracker
now the step to reproduce the bug

  1. open brave go to any site and even many site at many tabs the shield setting be standard as expected
  2. without closing any tab/tabs go to brave://settings/shields change shield to aggressive and strict
  3. check the tab of the opened site/sites check their shield setting changed to aggressive and strict automatically despite they are actually not as changing shield setting always lead to reload the page but all the tabs did not reloaded

Exact URL of the website in question:
any website same thing

Did the issue present with default Shields settings? (yes/no)

Is there a specific Shields configuration that causes the site to break? If so, tell us that configuration. (yes/no):

Does the site work as expected when using Chrome?

not applicable for the issue

Brave version (check About Brave):

Version 1.15.72 Chromium: 86.0.4240.75 (Official Build) (64-bit)
using linux centos

expected result should be

  1. shield setting for opened tab to stay as it been before change the global settings
  2. page actually reloaded to reflect the actual global settings

thanks and have a nice day :slight_smile:
