I’m using a Keyboad + Mouse combo, I select them and paste them and hit enter…
Private Mode also makes the same result…no chnage. Also to add Private mode got the same YT broken page as my first post states.

Here is the complete menu / settings option at iPad OS of the brave

Also starting of the menu / settings (additional post due to 4 image restriction)

let me ask someone from the brave team @Mattches to help you

hope your issue get fixed soon and have a nice day

Hey OP, don’t mind if I post the issues we faced, along with some extras you might relate to here because mine didn’t receive any reply.

Having running the latest version of both iPadOS and Brave on my iPad Pro, these issues have been annoying to say the least:

  1. On YouTube, page randomly freezes while playing or scrolling down to the comments.
  2. I can’t access my YouTube account settings after tapping on the channel icon. It simply expands a white column (by default, you’d see change to Night theme, change account, channel settings, etc…) that stays on loading forever.
  3. Certain sites won’t load, or simply display incorrectly even with Shield down. For instance, (Bitcoin advertising network) returns a white page while (gambling site) is forced into the first quadrant of the page after disabling the Shield, otherwise nothing shows up.
  4. Pre-roll ads still show on YouTube, although they are “paused” before the video plays, with every annotation appearing right away, including the ‘Skip Ad’.
  5. When playing a YouTube video and switching to another tab, sometimes the audio stops playing at random even with the progress bar continuing, or simply disappears from the Notification Center.

I raised this on back in May, thought I’d check out brave again and yet it’s still not working, no message from the team to say they acknowledge the issue or anything.

New company wants to change the world with a new browser, doesn’t talk to or acknowledge their community when they take their time out to list issues in the proper way.

So is there ever going to be a fix for this?

Just to add to my comment, if I turn off desktop site, the mobile site kicks in and it does work. The issue seems to be in desktop mode.
