Hi I am using chromium on lubuntu. It seems that since the last chromium update Im unable to download anything from chromium to a flash drive. It says access denied when I select the flash drive. There is no access to /media either. How to fix? thank you

With the flash drive selected, what is the output of

Code:
sudo fdisk -l
Can you access the drive with the file manager?

Yes I can access it with the file manager but not with chromium. Also not with firefox.

I must admit, I'm fresh out of ideas here.

Since you can access it with a file manager, it is clearly properly mounted and available. Why are you trying access it with your browsers (I'm not being facetious here): Is it to open a file, save a download, or something else?

Do you have write access to your usb drive? Can you copy files to your flash drive using the file manager?

Did you web-search the problem at all?
