Install Extensions error

I am not able to installed extensions with Brave.
I receive “An error has occured” Access denied.

Same thing happened when I tried to import extensions from Chrome?

Brave Version 1.23.71 Chromium: 90.0.4430.72 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Desktop: MATE 1.24.0 Distro: Linux Mint 20.2 Uma

To start with, that is an old-ish version of Brave. How’d you install it?

If not using these instructions, then I recommend removing it and doing this:

Interesting. When these problems first started I used the same instructions you posted to install Brave. The installed version in Mate is 1.23.71.

I changed to Cinnamon desktop instead of Mate. The installed version in Cinnamon is 1.32.113 Using Cinnamon desktop and 1.32.113 I can now add extensions.

Must be something to do with Mate.

I have an older version out of necessity. Using an old Macbook Air running Yosemite and I’m unable to update.

Brave Version 1.18.78 Chromium: 87.0.4280.141 (Official Build) (x86_64)


Just curious, what’s the reason you cannot update? Is it not supported, or, does it throw an error or something?

I’m not able to run the most recent version of Brave on this device do to it being End of Life.
