Youtube won't load on Brave

Description of the issue:
When visiting any page on I cannot click on links (including in video controls, suggested videos, comments, etc.). The video player will recognise keyboard inputs (space bar pauses videos, etc.) but not mouse. Embedded Youtube videos on seperate websites also do not recognise mouse input but rest of page functions normally. This issue does not occur with other video players or any other website I have seen.

Exact URL of the website in question:*

Did the issue present with default Shields settings? (yes/no)

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

Is there a specific Shields configuration that causes the site to break? If so, tell us that configuration. (yes/no):

Does the site work as expected when using Chrome?

Brave version (check About Brave):
1.35.101 (MacOS, M1)

@Darl can you try to make a second profile and test it with that?

It works with different profile. Does that help narrow down why it isn’t working on actual profile? I don’t want new profile.

@Darl Yeah, it narrows down. That means it’s not a browser issue but is an extension you have running or it’s something like Shield settings or something that you’ve changed. So now it’s going back to change one thing at a time to see if you can narrow it down. I’d start with looking at your extensions.
