Brave Browsers + Visual Studio IIS Debugging


Description of the issue:
If you use Brave as default browser and want to debug anything, using file upload context window and then confirm file to upload (which prompts brave file explorer window to close down) will kill the process.

Was identified by switching in parallel to Edge and following some activity.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Set Brave as Default Browser
  2. Have a WebService for ex. fileupload running locally in Debug mode with Swagger or just hit select file in postman
  3. Watch your Debugged process shutdown without any errors

Expected result:
File is supplied to browser context and sent off to web-service.

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Version 1.26.74 Chromium: 91.0.4472.124 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:
It might be sufficient to just attach any dummy webservice to the browser and use File Upload button on any other website to reproduce the issue. There was a report of this issue in 2019 linked below
