I think the problem is with my Linux setup.
I have a combo desktop with Arch KDE - DWM setup.
SO i can login to KDE and use everything as normal i can also login to another desktop type of the same O/S DWM which uses the same apps.
I have no issue with any apps other that Brave for some reason i guess how it is designed.
I have Brave as my daily driver and everything is fine and i am logged into my items and my cookies remember. But if i move over to my other desktop environment same o/s same user no rebooting just logout and re login
But Brave logs me out of everything and Sync breaks so i guess its a design issue. But i do not get this in Firefox or Edge ??
As it says, it’s because nobody has said anything in 30 days. It makes the assumption that either the issue is resolved or the person doesn’t care anymore. It’s important to keep topics alive.
Lastly, it’s important to tag people. Simply replying is not enough to send a notification. And if we aren’t notified, then it’s a roll of the dice if we actually see your topic. Keep in mind there are hundreds of posts each day, not to mention all the tickets and other issues that get worked on as well.
@osopolar No, you’re good. I’m speaking to m6f0h91p who was complaining saying what about other users who are having the same issue, especially if it’s after 30 days and topics are locked. The answer to that is those newer people should create new issues.
In regards to your topic, I’ll go ahead and merge yours with this one.
I couldn’t reproduce your issue, because in fact I could not install Arch Linux, as it is a non-trivial thing. Preconfigured image from https://gitlab.archlinux.org/archlinux/arch-boxes/ didn’t work for me because it refused to accept arch (password: arch) credentials somehow.
When Brave can’t get access to OS safe storage these three systems don’t work:
security cookies, which are used to stay logged in to websites;
I am actually on Arcolinux and as mentioned I am using a combo which is KDE and DWM.
When I am in KDE sync works but when I switch to DWM just a different desktop environment but using same browser and profile sync is locked
I have the same problem on Debian 12 with Brave version 1.56.11 Chromium: 115.0.5790.102 (Official Build) (64-bit).
I get logged out every few days as described at https://github.com/brave/brave-core/pull/18404.
Usually it’s not a big deal for me, but it gets annoying over time.
Maybe there is still a bug?
