Additional information: I lately couldn’t leave a sync chain, so I tried reinstalling brave without my data removed, and now my ads won’t work too. so I tried disabling and enabling ads back, but it keeps toggling back to grey when I click it. notifications are enabled, and working for sites. ads on my android brave still work. Tried restarting, still no. also tried reopening the browser 5 times, still didn’t work.
