This is a new issue. I’ve been using Facebook’s chat messenger app in a Brave browser tab for months without issue. Within the past month or so I haven’t been able to send images (or any of the GIF etc options available in Messenger). If I attempt to send an image - text says Sending but nothing is ever sent.
I’ve logged off and back in, closed the tabs and cleared the cache…I’m on a LAN connection sending images that are 100k. Something isn’t right. I’ve also tried ‘shields down’ and it also does not work. I believe it may be related to end to end encryption. The “text” part of the message works as expected. Uninstalled and reinstalled Brave and issue persists…
It is also NOT an account issue. I tried using Firefox and it sends images without a problem. (this also occurs in Vivaldi)
I’m using Linux Mint 21.3. x86_64 with kernel 188.8.131.52-generic
Brave: [Version 1.62.153 Chromium: 121.0.6167.85 (Official Build) (64-bit)]
Any suggestions would be welcome. As I love Brave and don’t want to have two browsers open. Meh.
Is this not happening to anyone else ?
in the above image - each is an attempt to send an image. they are just “hang” on sending…
