Browser freezes when opening/saving files + Ubuntu 22.04

Same old, same old. New Install of Ubuntu 22.04, tried the version in Ubuntu repos, the version from the Brave repo, and every trick that has been mentioned in the last several years that Dr Google could find: no cure.

Snap version is fine. Don’t care if it ain’t the newest, it’s the only version I can find that works.

Hello @bwucie

Thank you for reaching out and I’m sorry to hear you are going through this. Could you please share the following information:

1 - What kind of device and OS do you have?
2 - Have you updated to the latest Brave version?

Be waiting for your response!

Problem has gone away. I did another install of Ubuntu 22.04 LTS.

I then used the instructions here: to install the release version, currently: Version 1.50.114 Chromium: 112.0.5615.49 (Official Build) (64-bit).

NOTE: At least in Ubuntu, it is necessary to either edit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/brave-browser-release.list to specify ARCH=AMD64 after installing the brave keyring, or edit this command in the installation instructions:

echo "deb [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/brave-browser-archive-keyring.gpg] stable main"|sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/brave-browser-release.list

to read: ```
echo “deb [arch=amd 64 signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/brave-browser-archive-keyring.gpg] stable main”|sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/brave-browser-release.list

If neither amendment is made, Brave does not install.

All that said, my current version of Brave-Browser works just fine, with no freezes when saving downloads.
