[Linux] Can't upload anything anymore

Description of the issue:
Since a week or so, I can’t upload anything in Brave, nor, I think, any Chromium-based browser. I still can in Firefox though.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Launch Brave browser (laptop — details below);
  2. Open any website with an “upload” functionnality;
  3. Try to upload one or more file(s) (the type does not matter: pdf, txt…).

Actual Result:
Popup example for 2 files:
And then, when I clik “Upload”:

Here the website is ProtonDrive, but then again it doesn’t matter the website.

Expected result:
The file(s) get uploaded without error.

Reproduces how often:

Operating System and Brave Version:
Linux: openSUSE Tumbleweed. Brave version: v1.61.104 (Dec 13, 2023).

Additional Information:
Even though I don’t think there’re relevant (since the problem persists in private — without extensions — windows):

Also, the Proton VPN extension seems to produce this popup at browser start up:


I’m not sure what it means, whether or not I should log in, and if logging in with my Proton 1rst passwords works (Proton requires two passwords…).

After some testing, I also discovered that the size of the file does not seem to be the main problem, because I found out I could upload images but not PDFs — even though they’re less heavy than some of the images…
