opening TOR browser

Description of the issue:
Typing in the web address for The Guardian newspaper or following any links with those two domain names at the start results in the TOR browsing mode opening up in a new TOR browser window. The Guardian newspaper webpage loads in the normal tab, however the TOR link is invalid so does not load.

Exact URL of the website in question:

Did the issue present with default Shields settings? (yes/no) Yes

Does the site function as expected when Shields are turned off? No - same effect no matter if Sheilds are up or down

Is there a specific Shields configuration that causes the site to break? If so, tell us that configuration. (yes/no): No

Does the site work as expected when using Chrome? Yes - bug is specific to Brave

Brave version (check About Brave): V1.39.111 (May 24, 2022)

Thanks for reaching out. Can you please check Settings —> Extensions and toggle the option shown below “off”, then try again?

As mattches said, toggle the option to Off.

Also, guardian just launched their onion service (just 2 days back). That is why they might have some problems with their servers being overloaded or not correctly confugured.

So, if next time (few days/weeks later) the guardian tor window opens (opt in), you will surf the website correctly as you do it on it clearnet site.
