I can't download any thing with brave on fedora 36

i can’t download any thing with braves files and pictures, download just won’t work

Hello @gadour

you mean fedora 36 beta?

could you disable all extension and try in private mode? if it work then the issue could be one of your extension or you need to clear your cache

could you create new brave profile (from menu choose create new profile)and try again without changing any setting or installing any extension

if you use fedora 36 beta did chrome work fine there or not?

hope that help and have a nice day :slight_smile:

yes chrome work fine

and same thing in the private mode there is nothing the same problem, it didn’t work

just to confirm you have fedora 36 beta right?

did you tried to create new profile ?

what you brave version?

go to brave://settings/downloads what the location there ?

sorry yes i have fedora 36 beta

Version 1.36.122 Chromium: 99.0.4844.88 (Official Build) (64-bit)


and same thing with new profile it doesn’t work

what happened when you try to download a file

does that happen for every site

does disable the shield make difference so go to the site you want then click on the lion icon and disable it and see if it work fine or not?

desabling the shield doesn’t affecting anything same problem when i click download my screen get darker for a while then nothing same in facebook when i want to download some pics and in every website with any regular download operation same issue.
even i post here :

go to brave://settings/downloads and make sure to enable Ask where to save each file before downloading does it help

i notice you use os theme could you disable it and see if the new profile work fine or not?

could you double check the download folder permission ?

not sure if that would help but could you try to go to brave://settings/system and disable hardware acceleration and see if it help

could you restart you whole computer and your router

by the way they just released new update could you try to update and find if it fix the issue or not

i make the update but nothing please help me bro

Hello @gadour

did you tried this or not?

how did you install brave in the first time ?

yes i did every thing u told me and i install it via .rpm file i use fedora gnu/linux os

Hello @gadour

i am not sure where did you get that rpm the only thing i can think of that you used unoffecial repositry as i see one here https://fedora.pkgs.org/35/unitedrpms-x86_64/brave-1.35.84-7.fc35.x86_64.rpm.html called UnitedRPMs x86_64

if you do not have any BAT (the reward token) in your wallet and try to backup your bookmark and all the things from brave like passwords and what ever you like

then uninstall brave then install it using those command line from here

but i recommend that you also remove the BraveSoftware folder before installing brave again so do this after you uninstall the rpm that you installed that you will find here in 2 places

  1. /home/gadour/.config the .config folder is hidden folder
  2. /home/gadour/.cache the .cache folder is also hidden folder

and let me ask one of the team @Mattches if he can request the removal of brave from that repository

the repo called UnitedRPMs x86_64

hope that help and have a nice day :slight_smile:

Ok thank u but about the rpm that i’m use it is from the official website of brave

Ohhh sorry i installed it with this command from terminal sudo dnf install brave-browser

could you send me link to the rpm file where you downloaded it from

do not be sorry

does that mean you run those 4 command line

sudo dnf install dnf-plugins-core

sudo dnf config-manager --add-repo https://brave-browser-rpm-release.s3.brave.com/x86_64/

sudo rpm --import https://brave-browser-rpm-release.s3.brave.com/brave-core.asc

sudo dnf install brave-browser

sudo dnf install brave-browser this command line will install brave from the repo but i need to confirm that you used the official repo from brave not a third party one
