Drag and drop doesn’t work.
Since a few updates, dragging and dropping assets into brave does not yield any results.
All I get is a crossed circle icon when trying to do so. Makes websites such as Wetransfer, attaching files to an emails a pain.
Drag a file/document into the Brave Browser window.
Cursor turns into a crossed circle.
File should be recognized by the browser and one should be able to drop it into the relevant field.
I am also experiencing this issue with drag and drop. Also external URLs are no longer opening in Brave, ie a link in a discord chat no longer opens upon clicking. Links in Outlook, Zoom, Slack, all not working at the moment.
Edit: Exiting Brave and relaunching fixed both issues, I guess I had just been closing the window and it maybe continued to run in background. As an aside, I often access this PC through Chrome Remote Desktop, unsure if that made things act strange.
Let me keep on bumping this thread as much as I can since I’ve been trying to get some help off of the devs for a while now and there seems to be no better way to reach support.
Please look into this @Alice2095 . It’s a major dealbreaker and I really wouldn’t want to get back to chrome (Where this functionality works as expected…).
I seem to have found a solution.
My default file manager is Total Commander. Trying to drag files from it to the Brave window didn’t work as per my description up until I launched Total Commander with Administrative privileges. Now the drag and drop functionality works as expected.
I hope this is going to help you solve any similar problems.
