Sometime in the last few days, the comments section for YouTube videos stopped appearing when I bring up the videos. Four days ago (the date of my last YouTube comment), the comments were definitely showing up. Today, they’re not. I’m still seeing notifications of replies to my comments, and can see (and reply to) those particular comments through the notification dropdown, but the regular comments section below the video description is not showing up. There’s not even a progress wheel; just blank screen.
If I bring up YouTube in a private window, the comments show up fine. I can log in to my regular YouTube account in the private window, and they keep working (which will be the workaround I go with if we can’t find a full solution). Similarly, they show up fine in the other browsers (Firefox, Chrome, Edge) on my computer.
Putting shields down for YouTube does not help. I’m not willing to do a full reset to try to clear this up - that would be a bigger hassle than the workaround - although I’d be willing to try just clearing YouTube-specific cache and cookies if I knew how to do that. I have no extensions installed, and as far as I know, I had not changed any Brave settings during those few days.
I’m running Brave Version 1.19.88 Chromium: 88.0.4324.96 (Official Build) (64-bit)
