Brave will freeze in the current Window if I select Upload or Add Attachment, and usual browser behavior will Pop-up the Windows Explorer Window to select file but nothing will happen. I have this issue on at least two of my Windows Computers, all under the same Sync Account.
Steps to Reproduce
- In Gmail, I click on “Add Attachment” button
- Any Website where I click on “Upload” button
- In “Add Image or File” menu, I select “From my device” and click on “Choose Files” button
Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
Brave freezes. I must terminate the process in Windows Task Manager. I re-open Brave browser and attempt above steps again. Brave freezes again.
When I click the button in Firefox/Chrome Edge browsers (also installed on my machine), “Open” window pop-up appears asking me to locate the file to upload.
Reproduces how often:
All the time.
Operating System and Brave Version
Windows 10 (Dell XPS 7590)
Version 1.31.88 Chromium: 95.0.4638.69 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Eset Internet Security Antivirus
Steps Tried to Fix
Cleared the Site Data for Gmail
Disabled all Extensions
Turned off Shields for Sites I need to upload something
This problem is only present within Brave none of my other Browsers I have installed have this problem. Its odd that is it happening across my devices even with Extensions disabled.
Saw previous post about this in the community and their solution didnt work for me concerning uninstalling Dropbox as I dont have it installed.
Checked the Safety Check within Brave no issues there.
