This has nothing to do neither with Brave, nor with Manjaro. It has to do with xdg-desktop-portal and/or depending what you installed from xdg-desktop-portal-gnome or you installed the xdg-desktop-portal-gtk … but my guess is that you have the former and might not act properly outside gnome shell. I might be wrong, but that is what you should investigate and try to use xdg-desktop-portal-gtk and check the service for it to be enabled if you replace it.

unfortunately I didn’t understand what I have to do or check.

I have manjaro cinnamon

Operating System: Manjaro Linux                   
 Kernel: Linux 5.17.15-1-MANJARO
    Architecture: x86-64

But your right, i have the same error with vivaldi

Here a solution from cneeper

It’s works for me… by uninstalling xdg-desktop-portal and flatpack.
Why this package are useful by default ?
