    After bragging about what a great browser Brave is I have found some irritating flaws in it.
    #1 The ad blockers that are built into it has slowed down the HEF website so badly I no longer use it here. Especially when posting a response in a thread.
    I thought it was a problem with the website, until I started using Microsoft Edge with no ad blockers.
    #2 -It blocks harmless images in some of the emails I receive.
    #3- It will not allow me to use the clear all box for my recently viewed items on eBay.
    Microsoft Edge lets me clear it just fine.

    Another flaw in Brave reared it's ugly head today.
    I tried to get the UPS shipment details on the delivery progression and Brave blocks it.:mad:
    I reinstalled Firefox and it has no problems with displaying the UPS shipment details.

    I switched to Brave with my new computer and have never had anything like that happen. It works like any other browser for me.

    I cleared all of the cookies stored in Brave and I can now see the UPS shipment progress just fine.
