Chromium freezes with attachment from external drive

Hi all,

I just finished installing the latest version of archlabs and it works great.

However, I have a problem with chromium (or google-chrome).

When I attach a file to an email message using the Gmail interface, chromium freezes if this file is present on an external hard drive and I have not visited in the file explorer . If I browse the external hard drive in thunar before attaching the file, then it works fine.

Do you see how to fix this problem?

Thanks.

Let me ask you this, if you go to Thunar and visit that external HD, do you have to enter your password to access the files?

Thanks for your help.

You’re right: I forgot to mention that my external hard drive is not encrypted and, when I go to Thunar, I don’t have to enter my password to access the files.
