Hello @BraveGem

Thanks for bringing this to our attention and I’m sorry to hear you are going through this. Could you please try installing the Beta or Nightly version of Brave to see if the issue persist on those versions?

Let us know if that works!

Hello @Alice2095

Thank you for your reply.

I downloaded and installed both the beta and nightly as you suggested. Shields set to standard still result in images in articles on SoraNews not loading.

@fanboynz Any thoughts on this? Image slots being blocked as if are ads. This happens even if not aggressively blocking.

Shields On:

Shields Off

And like said, it’s not really an ad. It’s them putting something in image relating to the article. They have other parts of their pages, such as https://soranews24.com/2022/12/30/2022s-top-stories-in-anime-manga-and-studio-ghibli-news-【soranews24-year-in-review】/

uBO has a lot of counters for the site, the site seems to be quite proactive it break users experiences. We’re missing some regex’s (for remove param). Could be more to be honest

||g.doubleclick.net/gampad/ads?$xhr,removeparam=/^(co|eid|eri|ga_|idt|ifi|impl|ohw|oid|ps|ptt|vis|[abdfl-nr-u])/,domain=soranews24.com

I’ll look into it further, no eta.
