Browser freezes when opening/saving files


Yes, I reproduced it multiple times, there are no crashes reported. It just freezes, then i have to close with the xkill command from the terminal.

How do you change between guest and private mode?

About the second question. Even with no extensions installed, this error occurs.

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

Same issue. A while ago Ubuntu (Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS) did some updates and after that Brave (Version 1.45.118 Chromium: 107.0.5304.91 (Official Build) (64-bit)) keeps freezing every time when uploading or saving files.

  • Using a guest window freezes as well while the normal window stays interactive.
  • resetting all settings and removing extensions did not help

Ok this helped.

Settings → Download → Ask where to safe each file before downloading → OFF!!!

It looks to me that the save at dialog is modal and does not close correctly.

Uploading something still feezes. I am betting it is the the same issue. That file open/save dialog does not close correctly.

Still freezes, sorry for my late replay

@Kevin_cc , @Mattches any new content / ideas here ?

Apologies for the late reply — also I didn’t see this when I looked before but we actually have an open issue for this already:

I’m going to add everyone here’s reports to the issue and ping some team members to hopefully get some more eyes on the issue.

Thanks, I experience the same issue with a macOS Catalina, it doesn’t seem it’s just a Linux issue.
