In file selector,"home" folder will point to a folder under brave installation

Description of the issue:

I’m using Ubuntu 20.04, installed from snap.

sudo snap install brave

The problem is that when I want to upload or download a file, in the file selector, the Home page is pointed to a folder under brave installation called ‘146’

Here are some screenshot to show the problem.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Anytime when open the file selector in brave.

Expected result:

  • It should point to my $HOME folder isn’t it?

Brave Version( check About Brave):

Additional Information:

  • To do some experiment I tried to open the file selector from my desktop, firefox. And the result is normal, Home folder is correct in both applications.

  • Thank you for the help!

Hello @stu00608

could you go to brave://settings/downloads and make sure the location is set to the required folder

if that did not help could you install brave using the command line from here

hope that help and have a nice day :slight_smile:
