Windows 10 - block element via selector doesn't work

Hello there! This is my first post, and I’ll try to be as clear as I can.

Description of the issue:
On Windows 10, I’m not able to block via selector anything on any page. For example, on I cannot block via selector the ads that are appearing on top of my mails.
A clear guide on how to do this is here:
How to use Brave's "Cosmetic Filter" to block undesired page elements

There are some GIFs showing up how to do this. After clicking the “Block element via selector” a message box appears. Mine will not appear, never.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Go to
  2. Find an element to block
  3. Right-click and try to block via selector
  4. No results (expected a message box, or something)


Reproduces how often:
Always, on every page.

Operating System and Brave Version:
Windows 10, Brave 0.64.77, Chromium: 74.0.3729.169 (official) (64 bit)
