Browser crashes when clicking on a downloaded file


Description of the issue: Lately when I download a file, be it image or anything, and try to click or drag-and-drop into another application, the browser crashes and closes without giving any error messages. When I start the browser again I see only the usual message “Brave closed unexpectedly. Restore last session” or something along the lines of that.
How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Download a file
  2. Click the file in the download bar at the bottom of the browser
  3. See your browser crash

Expected result: The file is opened

Brave Version( check About Brave): Brave is up to date


Version 1.48.167 Chromium: 110.0.5481.104 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information: Only extensions I use are Return YouTube Dislike, YouTube NonStop, and JSON Viewer. OS: Windows 11 64 bit

Hey @Jarc-1107 did you get a chance to look at the crash logs?

I have escalated this to my support team. Be waiting for our response. Thanks in advance.

Hi @mnfalcon, can you update to the newest Brave version and let me know if this is still an issue?

Hi @mnfalcon, just following up. Please let me know if this is still an issue. Thank you.

Hi @steeven, Yes sorry I didn’t update earlier. I’ve upgraded to latest version but problem persists. Even for example dragging a PDF into Brave makes it crash.
