The strange behavious with iOS is back. It jumps to the wrong post on any alert I click on for this forum if I've been in that thread before. Since I use my phone browser 50% for MT browsing this is a deal breaker. :ROFLMAO: I'll report it and try again when it's updated.

Anyone knows what's this new "Aggressive" setting is about?
It is only visible in Beta and Nightly builds, but not in the Stable version.

Trying it out... :)

//EDIT. Answer below:
However, Shields does offer an Aggressive option for blocking Ads and trackers. Selecting the Aggressive option will block all site ads and trackers, including the first party ones.

Yes, It's agressive. :DJust kidding. I believe it is generally similar to other browsers' adblocking levels, e.g. Edge Chromium's basic, balanced & strict. I'm using both aggressive adblocking and strict fingerprint protection. No broken webpages that I'm aware of. There is a wierd bug on YouTube but not sure if it's related to Shields or not.

This bug occurs only while cursor hovers over iframe but video displays clearly otherwise.

My guess is Brave will intorduce these options to relelase channel after some testing and feedback.

I also see this Youtube bug now... Wonder what it is. Have you reported it to Brave?
Everything is just fine with Stable release...

Yes, this Youtube bug is caused by Strict Fingerprinting protection. Tuning it back solves the issue :)

I was getting the same 'interference' on YouTube last week when using Firefox, as with your example when the curser was over the iframe it showed like the screenshot, move it away and I got the full video screen as it should be. I played around with a few extensions that I thought might have caused it with no success. It disappeared sometime at the end of last week, I'm not sure when as I didn't use YouTube for several days.

Edit - typo correction.

Strange, I turned it back and still had it. Maybe page didn't refresh properly.
My similar issue was when using Firefox, but if its a fingerprinting protection issue its quite possible that other browsers would see something like this too, especially if its a G**gle site that the fingerprinting defence causes issues with I'm not surprised. But, one of my extensions that I tried turning off to resolve the issue was Canvas Defender and that made no difference.

Happy to see I am already updated and current! And noticed that VS_WLC declared the brave setup.exe "not safe" I think because it is not signed.
