Why do I have those Ads in Brave Browser?

Description of the issue:
Since few months when I use Brave Browser these Ads started to appear on top of the other search results.
These Ads usually appear 1 or 2 seconds after the search.

sometimes in addition to the ads, the first time I open the search page if I click anywhere on the page it redirects me to another ads opening a second tab on the browser.

I have your Shields set to “aggressively block ads & trackers” and on brave://adblock (or Settings → Shields → Content Filtering) I have “Fanboy Annoyances List” and “uBlock Annoyances List” checked

Exact URL of the website in question:
This happens with every research did on the browser so I don’t have an exact URL.

This is an example of search on Brave:

And same search did on Chrome:

Did the issue present with default Shields settings? (yes/no)

Does the site function as expected when Shields are turned off?

Is there a specific Shields configuration that causes the site to break? If so, tell us that configuration. (yes/no):

Does the site work as expected when using Chrome?

Brave version (check About Brave):
Versione 1.47.186 Chromium: 109.0.5414.119 (64 bit)

@kubot4 Can you make sure to test everything as mentioned at PSA: Current FAQ - #29 by Saoiray and advise of the results? In particular, am most curious about Private Window and New profile.

Switch to Aggressive mode on google.com will remove those ads @kubot4
