File name is not focus when save picture or download file

Description of the issue:

File name text is not on focus when I save picture or download file.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  2. A window appear.
  3. While file name is selected, I can’t directly type the file name, I have to click on the name first and then I can type the file name.

Hello @ozzo

first try in private mode if it work then the issue could be related to one of the extension so disable all of them then enable them one by one till you get the one causing the issue

if that was not the cause then

how did you install brave using snap or using those command

sudo apt install apt-transport-https curl

sudo curl -fsSLo /usr/share/keyrings/brave-browser-archive-keyring.gpg

echo "deb [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/brave-browser-archive-keyring.gpg arch=amd64] stable main"|sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/brave-browser-release.list

sudo apt update

sudo apt install brave-browser

if you install it using snap then most probably it’s the issue

hope that help and have a nice day :slight_smile:

Thank you for the answer. Unfortunately using private mode doesn’t fix the problem. I also tried disable all the extensions with no success.

About installation, no I don’t use snap to install Brave, instead I installed it like you mention in your reply.

you welcome

could you create new profile and see if it work fine there

I create a new profile and the problem still exists.

For infomation: I also use Xubuntu on another system and Brave is working fine.

Another browsers I installed on Mint:

  • Microsoft Edge and it has the same problem with Brave.
  • Opera: has the same problem
  • Firefox: doesn’t have the problem

not sure if there setting in mint to change that or maybe the issue related to the desktop environment that mint use could you change that and see if it help

I think so, all browsers that have problems are Chromium.


Same problem here:

Brave Version:
Version 1.35.101 Chromium: 98.0.4758.87 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:
OS: LinuxMint 20.3 Cinnamon
