yes, almost the same amount of ads

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?
No ads with Chrome + uBlock Origin

Version 1.28.106 Chromium: 92.0.4515.159 (Offizieller Build) (64-Bit)


Fix is incoming, give it 24-48hrs. Also fixes


That’s great news. Does the fix come as a new version? I remember a brave:// link that was posted in a similar thread where you could force a refresh of the ad blocking-list, but I can’t find it any more.

Nup, the lists automatically update daily. I would ensure Aggressive mode is enabled also

Funny that you media guys are also using browsers with a built-in adblocker :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

Confirmed that the ads are gone on :+1: No need for aggressive-mode btw.


…and they are back. At least the video-ads in articles.

Not really possible to block the video ads
