Description of the issue:
I’m on Linux Mint and I’ve installed Brave via
snap. When I attempt to make Brave the default browser via Brave settings, it doesn’t work. I have to go to Linux Mint settings and set it there.
Edit: as I’m writing this, it occurs to me maybe this is a limitation of
Linux Mint: 20.2
Brave: 1.33.106 (Dec 14, 2021)
This bug has been described in these other reports:
But those issues were closed as though the bug is fixed. The bug is not fixed!
This bug is minor but rather noticeable. I don’t like recommending Brave to people and literally one of the first things they want to do doesn’t work. That’s NOT a good first impression. I think this bug should be prioritized above the normal scope of “minor UX issue” because it’s part of the onboarding process and therefore highly visible.
