Brave doesn't recognize upload files

I make a format in my pc with Ubuntu 22.10
After installing Brave 1.45.116 - 107.0.5304.91
I can’t upload files for examples in my Google Drive. Either image files or pdf. I take the message “unrecognized file” , of course with other browsers work fine.

Try to find solution but i couldn’t find any

Thank you

Hello there @nikar please accept my apologies for this inconvenience.

Could you please try opening your main profile in private or guest mode to see if you are able to upload files? If they do load, try disabling your extensions to see if this is the cause of the issue.

You can open a Guest Window by going to Main menu --> Open Guest window:

  1. On your computer, open Brave.
  2. At the top right, click Menu → More tools → Extensions.
  3. On to the extension you want to remove, click Remove.
  4. Confirm by clicking Remove.

Let me know if that works.

Hi !

Same problem here and it’s getting to be well known: You cannot upload files anywhere from Brave: File Unrecognisable, or 0 kb.
Not just Google but anywhere. Every time I have to open Chrome. A bit annoying, since I wanted to replace it.

Hi @MaGaSi could you please confirm that you are on the latest Brave version?

Also, please try disabling your extensions to see if this works.


Hi again @nikar did you try disabling your extensions to see if this allows you to upload files?

Also try disabling Hardware Acceleration in settings to see if this resolves the issue. You’ll find this in Settings --> Additional Settings --> System --> Hardware Acceleration

Be waiting for your response.

I have same issue with Brave and Ubuntu 22.10 Can’t upload anything to anywhere.
Google Drive says “file unreadable”. May be it’s snap issue. Can’t figure out, just switch to Firefox for uploading.

Could you please try installing Brave Beta or Nightly to see if the issue persist on those Brave versions? You can install them from here

If the issue persist there, let me know.

Thank you for your help.
After checking with the beta version I just reinstalled the stable snap version and now uploading works.
