Downloads / Uploads don't work

**Description of the issue:
Can’t download any files through Brave. When I try to download any file on any site the box doesn’t appear to choose where to save it even though that option is selected in my settings. There is a number and a full progress bar on the Brave icon in the doc indicating something was being downloaded though it never finishes. On the download page it shows nothing and in the download folder I have selected there is no file. Also if I click to upload something a box never appears for me to select a file. This started happening about a week ago or so and I’ve been using either Safari, Chrome or Firefox in the meantime since those don’t experience this problem.

I’ve been using Brave for a while now; I would guess a year or two with no problems like this. It runs fine on my phone (iOS) and laptop (macOS). I’ve tried restarting the computer, cleared browser data, uninstalled and reinstalled Brave all with no success. **

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Try to download any file on any site in Brave on this computer.

Expected result:
Downloaded files and a dialogue box/file selector when appropriate

Brave Version:
Version 1.57.62 Chromium: 116.0.5845.180 (Official Build) (x86_64)

macOS Catalina version 10.15.7
iMac (27-inch, Late 2012)
