Can't add extensions

Unable to add extensions. Get access Denied message. Brave is
Version 1.25.72 Chromium: 91.0.4472.101 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Windows 7
This is new behavior

That’s an old build. Current version is v1.44.112 and Chromium version 106.0.5249.119.

Can you update to the latest version?

No and not sure why.
BRave tries to update and gives message:
An error occurred while checking for updates: The download failed. (error code 7: 0x80072F7D – system level).

You have to manually update it then, you can’t just hope the updater to always work, if it doesn’t then uninstall and reinstall. but this is where you can find the lateststandalone versions, not the online ones.

Release v1.44.112 (Chromium 106.0.5249.119)

I usually keep a copy of the installer on my machine because it will download the latest version.

Updating Brave did the trick.
thanks to all for your advice.
