Web developer question: why is a script blocked?


I’m new here, I’m developing a portal for a customer. He wants Brave support (which is a good idea).
I hope this is the best place for support to webdevelopers.

  1. I have a script that loads a CSV directly for the same URL as the webpage. But Brave blocks the script as “cross-side tracking”. But in my view I’m not doing anything cross-side, I’m still within the same domain, even same directory on the server.
  2. Does the site function as expected when Shields are turned off ? YES
  3. Is there a specific Shields configuration that causes the site to break? If so, tell us that configuration: Cross-side trackers blocked
  4. Does the site function as expected when using other web browsers ? Yes, Chrome and Firefox do not block this script.
  5. What Brave version/Build are you using when you encounter the issue? Version 1.0.1 Chromium: 78.0.3904.108 (Official Build) (64-bit)

What filename is the csv? (be less ad-like, tracking-like filename), maybe rename the file?

File name was .log.
Renaming the CSV file did not help, but changing the name of the javascript did the trick, Brave does not like: logview.js

some of these “log” files are considered trackers (where a site will ‘log’ user details) Its a quite a common tracking term
