I run into websites where most of the content first loads and then disappears. If I click ‘Esc’ right after the site has loaded I’m able to see the content. This happens fairly often, and I have been using the report-a-broken-link-button quite a lot, but now I’m wondering if there’s something wrong with my setup rather than Brave.
This overlay is blocked and produces some weird results – but also explains why hitting Esc fixes the site. Because all you’re doing is closing that overlay window, you just can’t see it. This is likely something to do with the way your Shields are set up. I would recommend clearing cache/site data for the sites you see this behavior and see if this changes anything.
Can you also tell me what your Shields settings are set to?
Wouldn’t that only happen with shields up? It seems like hitting Esc cancels some job that would otherwise render the page invisible. If I click Esc after the page has finished loading, nothing happens.
I’m sorry you’re having issues with Brave; but I’m glad I’m not alone. After a recent SSD hardrive change I find that my previous favourite sites simply do not work. Being very reluctant to use Google Chrome (where all of my favourites are stashed; I’m a little stuck. Can anyone help?
I don’t see any reason why this should be the case for you – on my end, I’m able to visit and browse the site without issue. Can you please try creating a temp. browser profile and visiting the site using it? I’m curious to see whether or not you get the same behavior.
Also, do you have any other examples of sites that won’t load?
I think you may need to clear your cache/browsing data for All time in the Clear browsing data menu. Something is locking the site up but its hard to tell what it is – often times clearing data will shake loose the stuff that’s stuck. This is why it works on your other profile – because whatever data is “stuck” isn’t present in the newly created profile.
Hmm – well it’s clearly whatever the difference between the two is. Can you visit the site and open dev tools (Menu --> More Tools --> Dev tools) and send a screenshot of the Console tab in the dev tools window?
