I can’t seem to be able to drag and drop files the way I used to anymore in Brave. This makes it particularly annoying when using cloud storage/file transfer sites such as Wetransfer and any cloud based drives (Google Drive, Box etc.)
The way the issue manifests itself is as follows:
Go to a website that allows to drag and drop a file (Wetransfer.com for instance)
Try dragging a file onto the drop zone on the website
Get presented with a crossed red circle in place of the mouse cursor.
Expected result: In this case Wetransfer usually puts a blue overlay over the whole area to notify that a file is ready to be dropped and on mouse release the file gets added to the list of files to be uploaded.
Similarly, I can’t for instance drop a JPG onto a browser tab to have it open in it. Used to work just fine… Maybe it’s how Brave interacts with the new Windows 11 22h2 Update?
Please help. This is potentially my reason for me to have to go back to Chrome and I REALLY wouldn’t want that…
I’m not sure how to do that, but as far as I remember, I didn’t really change any settings. It just stopped working. I’m assuming that it doesn’t work for any site that has a similar functionality and on top of that, as I mentioned, I do believe it’s happening on an Brave/System level as I’m not able to drag and drop a simple JPG into the window too.
Nope. Nothing changed. None of the sites I listed nor the browser allows for a drag&drop operation. If I might add, this cannot be cookie-related as before I was able to drag simple JPG image into a browser window and have it open. Devs? Any ideas?
