"Trackers and adblocking" setting reverting back to standard mode issue still persisting on version 1.21.74

When I go to settings and change the “trackers and ad blocking” setting from “standard” to “aggressive,” it reverts back to “standard” upon closing & reopening the browser.

Scenario of the issue:

  1. Go to “Settings,” search for the “trackers and ad blocking” option
  2. Change the setting from “standard” to “aggressive”
  3. Close the browser, reopen it and it’s reverted back to “standard.”

Expected result: Keep the “trackers and ad blocking” setting to “aggressive” mode even after closing and reopening the browser.

Brave Version: 1.21.74

Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
First, can you check and confirm whether or not you have any data set to be cleared “on exit” (Menu --> History --> Clear browsing data --> [On exit])?

Additionally, if the above doesn’t resolve the issue, do you have any extensions installed in the browser at this time? If so, can you try disabling them temporarily and try changing the Shields settings again and see if the issue persists?

I have unchecked “Site and Shield Settings” in the “Clear browsing data” section upon closing the browser, and the setting is set the way I’d like it. Thanks for the help!
