I’ve been at 0.0 BAT for over a month on my regular build of Brave and have not seen a single ad pop up. I installed the nightly build today and generated 0.1 BAT within 5 minutes and saw an ad pop up. My windows notifications settings are correct. There is definitely something wrong with my install for the regular build.
What is different about the nightly? We need to be able to change install locations for troubleshooting. I believe installing to a new location would solve the issue.
As I said previously, I am no longer using the “stable” regular build. To confirm for you I tested html 5 notifications on the “stable” regular build.
html 5 notifications and BAT generation works on the nightly build for brave.
I believe there is something corrupted in the backend code for BAT generation that cannot be fixed by basic troubleshooting. I’ve listed all basic troubleshooting steps that have been tried already. I’d appreciate trying something new than assuming that I didn’t do it.
Do you know if any extensions conflict with BAT rewards?
I attached a pic of the ones I have installed.
Netflix party, retailmenot, and honey weren’t used at the time it was messing up I think.
Oh also I had UBlock origin installed.
I’m unaware of any extensions that would conflict with Brave notifications.
You could try disabling all of your extensions. If that solves the problem, the next steps would be to enable each extension one by one, and seeing which one causes the issue. This may take some time because ads won’t immediately start showing.
