Hi, recently something has changed as opening an image or file in google chat, opens a new tab and then downloads it into the pc instead of just showing the picture in the full screen view. Does anyone had the same issue or know how to fix it? Thank you.
Sounds like a recent Media Keys problem
Thx for the answers, unfortunately it did not helped… I enabled “Temporarily unexpire M100 flags”, then enabled “Hardware Media Key”. Still while clicking on sent image on google chat, instead of opening it in full screen it is being opened in a new tab and starts to download (it is not even displayed in browser). Chrome works fine so for sure it is some brave settings. Others apps like messenger, whatsapp are also fine.
Try the (temporary?) fix for another recent issue . . .
Make note of any experiments/flags that you have experimented with; then click the
Reset all button.
You might be prompted to Restart Brave Browser.
brave://flags and search for
Enable De-AMP and select Disable
brave://net-internals/#dns and click on
Clear host cache
Next, go to:
brave://net-internals/#sockets and click on both (in succession):
Close idle sockets
Flush socket pools
Exit/Quit everything and restart your computer.
Thank you @289wk, it worked! Problem solved.
