Brave Sync works in Gnome, but not under Sway WM

Description of the issue:

When using Brave in Gnome (3.38.2) Sync works correctly. However, when launched while using the Sway window manager (either via ozone or Xwayland) it see the error “Decrypt sync seed failure”. Passwords cannot be accessed (none are listed). Any changes made to the Sync settings does not persist after shutting the browser off. After switching back to Gnome, everything works normally again (although I have been logged out from all accounts).

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.

  1. Sign in (GDM) and start Sway
  2. Start Brave (via launcher or command line).
  3. Sync is not working/passwords not available

Expected result:

Sync works as normal

Reproduces how often:


Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):

Manjaro 20.2, Gnome 3.38.2, Sway 1.51, Brave 1.18.77
