Brave-browser (1.29.76) is unable to download

Description of the issue:
Brave Browser is not able to download any file.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Click any downloadable reference, button, item in Brave. Observe a new tab being created, and closing befor completion.

Expected result:
The download starts.

Brave Version( check About Brave):
1.29.76, Chromium 93.0.4577.58, installed from the official brave repository (

I literally downloaded over 50 files today on the exact version.

Can you provide a Screen recording regarding this?

There you go

Note I having 0 issue downloading files from Microsoft Edge Beta (same operating system, same user).

Hmm that is pretty weird. Haven’t seen anybody face that issue.

Will let you know if I find a solution.

I appreciate, thanks

Could narrow down the issue to the launch-command I had been using to force the browser to run with the wayland compositor: Exec=/usr/bin/brave-browser-stable --enable-features=UseOzonePlatform --ozone-platform=wayland called from the browser’s .desktop file. I was not able to narrow this further down.

edit: fixing the command above fixed this issue. If a moderator sees this topic, they might as well delete it. :slight_smile:

Ohh wait, I see you are using linux and I am totally unaware about Linux.
So, I actually don’t know what that codes mean.

No issue downloading here. I have checked Ubuntu 21.04 and 20.04 and Archlinux

Brave has just been upgraded to 1.29.77, I have no problem with either 1.29.76 or 1.29.77.
