I use the Google Mail web interface for all my mail. For many years on all browsers, and until very recently on Brave, I was able to drag and drop a file onto a draft email message and have GMail accept it as an attachment. About a week or two ago, on Brave only, doing this immediately causes all open Brave tabs to turn white and become unresponsive. When I go to the mac Force Quite menu, Brave is not listed as “not responding,” but tabs remain white and unusable nonetheless, so I have to kill the app.
Steps to reproduce:
- log into Gmail web interface
- click to create a new mail message (will open a small window in bottom left of mail inbox for composing, don’t spawn this into a separate window)
- find a file on the computer, such as a PDF. Click and drag into into the draft email message
- the file does not “Drop” (it bounces back to the desktop), and then the browser turns white and becomes nonresponsive
Note the using the built in gmail “attach a file” icon (paper clip icon) to browse for the file, works fine.
