Youtube dropdown not working with ad and track blocking enabled

Description of the issue:
Since today:
2021-08-12 21.39.31

No extensions used, but the dropdowns stopped working while shield is on. Only if I disable ad-blocking and tracker blocking altogether it will work.

Exact URL of the website in question:

Screenshot of the ad as it appears in Brave
Did the issue present with default Shields settings? (yes/no)
yes

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

Is there a specific Shields configuration that causes the site to break? If so, tell us that configuration. (yes/no):
Active filters: EasyList Germany, Fanboy Annoyances List. I also tried to disable all and remove any custom filter (lists) from brave://adblock/ but it still doesn’t work.

Does the site work as expected when using Chrome?
yes

Brave version (check About Brave):
Version 1.28.105 Chromium: 92.0.4515.131 (Official Build) (x86_64)

Make sure that under brave://adblock the website’s script is cleared, to assure that Brave’s AdBlock feature is not breaking the page.

I had the same issue as well and a bit more but somehow this NOTICE by @Mattches fixed my random freezes and the YouTube context menu and notification issue

What do you mean by that? I removed all lists including the custom filters and it’s not working.

I’m not using Brave Rewards and I’m not on iOS, this is on macOS.

I believe that this issue is under development and is recognized as a bug, I am sorry for any misunderstanding.

Sorry, I attached the wrong link. The correct notice is this NOTICE: Users seeing browser freeze or crash may have faulty Ad Block Updater component . Will edit the previous response.
