Unable to log-in to NYPost.com website

Description of the issue

Unable to login to NYPost.com website unless the shields “Trackers and Ad Blocking” setting is changed to “Disabled”. Once I disable that setting and I am able to login, the website displays a button in the upper right corner.

However, if I go back to shields and re-enable the Trackers and Ad Blocking setting back to Standard, the website button indicating I am logged in suddenly disappears and is replaced by a “Log-In” button even though I am still logged in to the website. This change to to log-in button, however, means that I am prevented from logging out unless I go back to shields and change the setting for Trackers and Ad Blocking to disabled. Up until about 4 weeks ago, this bug did not occur. I could easily log in and out of that website without having to change the Tracking and Ad Blocking setting to Disabled.

Therefore, to log in or out of NYPost.com I must disable Tracking and Ad Blocking. If I re-enable that setting to standard the website doesn’t recognize I’m still logged in.
