Using Brave, I can pick any email in Yahoo webmail. I click to download the attachment. I can download it once with the save location dialog box coming up. When I click on another email and click download for the attachment, I get a message in the lower left hand corner of brave that says, “Processing request” and then that message goes away but nothing else happens. The only way I can get things to work is to Exit Brave, restart Brave, and then once again, I get one shot at a download. This is a major pain and I need a fix.
The issue is easily reproduced. It occurs every time I need/want to download an attachment.
This started happening about 7-10 days ago but never occurred before that. I could download as many attachments as I needed or wanted.
Anybody got any ideas?
I expect to be able to download any and all attachments as needed
Brave version 1.59.124
Windows 11 Pro, Version 22H2 installed on 4/21/23
OS Version: 22621.2428
I would guess that someone has seen this before and has a solution. PLEASE SHARE as this is very annoying to have to restart Brave all the time!!!
If no one answers my post, how can this be addressed? This is a VERY ANNOYING issue in Brave!
Does anyone have a suggestion on this issue?
make sure you update your brave first as the latest version is
Version 1.60.125 Chromium: 119.0.6045.199 (Official Build) (64-bit)
if it did not help then
could you go to
brave://settings/content/automaticDownloads then make sure you select
Sites can ask to automatically download multiple files
if that did not help
could you try in private mode and see if it work fine or not?
if it work fine then either you need to clear your cache /cookies or there issue with one of your extension so disable all of them then enable them one by one till you get the one causing the issue
hope that help and have a nice day
Thanks for the reply. Per your reply, I do not have the latest version but it says I am up to date:
I also checked the settings and that button was selected.
Lastly, the cache/cookie clearing worked. It has been a while since I have done so. I DESPISE clearing the cache because I leave tabs open for easy access and it logs me out of the ones that require logins. The good news is, when I see this issue crop up again (and I am sure it will), I know what to do!!
Thanks a million!!!
you very welcome @fyrebalzzzz
