I am also experiencing the same behaviour in 1.14.
But, this issue is fixed in our Beta, which is at 1.16.
If you want, you can download the Beta at https://brave.com/download-beta/ and test that the Shields issues is fixed.
But for now, we appreciate your patience as Brave updates from 1.14 to 1.16.

Thanks for that- much appreciated! I’ve just tested it in Beta, and it’s working okay.
