YES, ads show up without the Shields

Is there a specific Shields configuration that causes the site to break? If so, tell us that configuration. (yes/no):
(Do not apply)

Does the site work as expected when using Chrome ?
YES, Chrome shows ads on Youtube Music

Does the site work as I do expect when using Chrome + ABP ?
YES, when Adblock Plus is enabled in Chrome ads don’t show up!

Hey sorry for the delay @PDK

We’re using the same filters as ABP regarding youtube video adblocking, which I also patched for them. Cached results will show ads (re-showing existing results, like moving forward and backwards between videos).

I would update Brave first, then clearing the cookies/cache for youtube, then re-login. Also try in a clean profile, with no extensions enabled.

No rush here :slight_smile:
I understand it’s a cache issue and it’s probably the reason why it solved itself out after a while.

Thx for the enlightment :ok_hand:

(and the Easylist for so many years :wink:)
