Youtube video ads no longer blocked(Solved)

This problem seems strange to me, the problem appeared today when I opened my browser. Yesterday brave was able to block all ads on YouTube, Today it can’t, I was hoping to find out if there is a fix, or if other people had the same problem. I do not believe the problem was directly caused by the update from the old version of brave as the problem is just now appearing.

Did the issue present with default Shields settings? Yes

Where and how do the ads appear? Any Youtube video. Example:

Brave is up to date

Version 0.57.18 Chromium: 71.0.3578.80 (Official Build) (64-bit)

@Jalandral Does that open a new site in a new tab or just opens up a YouTube channel? If its a first party ad (opening a YT channel) then it is expected. But if its launching a third-party site then its a bug. Could you confirm what happens when you click that ad?

I apologize for taking so long to reply. After about 4 or 5 hours the ads stopped appearing. I have no clue why they stopped, as I hadn’t changed any settings in that time. Sorry for taking up some of your time.
