Android download error

I have been using Brave on Android 10 for some months now. Over the past few weeks I’ve been getting errors downloading (initially happened with . pdf file) ‘downlad error’ but later I realized it applied to all downloads including .apk. I could not even update Brave because of getting a ‘download error’ message but got no further details.

I switched back to Chrome (which I had disabled) and made it my default browser and then was able to download again. It’s a real problem not being able to do a download and reinsatall.

I am also getting a download related problem on Android AND PC. On Android, if I download a file, it instantly force closes the app. On Pc, direct links to downloads stopped working and I have to manually copy and paste into another tab for it to work.
