Recently I got a lot of Session verification failed errors. Which makes me have to delete (cookies & password) and re-login again, but even this solution does not work until disabling Brave shields.
What is the wrong Shields setting[1] that makes me get this error? "It's getting annoying and repeating every day."
Does someone else have the same problem on the same browser?


If you click a link or send a form that contains the wrong code, then you get the "session verification failed" error. This can happen when your code changes, but you're still looking at the old version of the page for some reason. Aggressive caching could cause this. Or maybe your browser is discarding the PHPSESSID cookie very frequently for some reason; your session code changes whenever you're issued a new PHPSESSID.
I think that's the cause of the problem but what is the solution? Even closing Shields requires repeating it almost daily.

If the problem still persist after you disable "Brave shield", then it's browser-specific problem and there's nothing you could do other than use other browser and hoping next Brave update would fix the problem.

But i've seen few users who use Brave browser, but don't have any problem when access this forum. Perhaps reset to default setting could fix the problem.

You need to green/white list the bitcointalk.org website, or else the PHPSESSID cookie will be blocked.

I'd be interested to know if there is a problem with the Brave browser. I use it all over the place, on Windows 10 and Linux via public WiFi, tethered, and on cable, and I haven't had any problems. I even use the Tor window. The only problem I had was trying to install the browser on the latest Mint release, but hopefully there has been a new release, and that is OK now,

I changed the name of the cookie. Does that fix it?

If Brave is blocking PHPSESSID cookies, then that's definitely broken behavior on their end. PHPSESSID is not some sort of tracking cookie; it's used for PHP's session management feature.

I still get this error but at a very low rate, maybe I got it twice in the last hours and it was resolved once the page was updated (Without deactivating the shields.)
It is no longer annoying so I think the problem has been solved. Thanks.
I will lock this topic within 24 hours.
