"ask for downloads location" slider not working

Description of the issue:
Brave “ask for downloads location” option doesn’t actually get disabled on Windows when the slider is turned off.
I read similar topics from the past where people couldn’t get Brave to ask for the download location.
I, on the other hand, cannot get Brave to stop asking for the location each time I want to download an image.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Launch Brave
  2. go to settings and turn off the “asking for downloads location” slider.
  3. Visit any website, then try to download an image.

Actual Result:
Brave asks for the download location each time.
Restarting browser doesn’t help.

Expected Result:
Brave should not ask for the download location after turning off that slider in the settings.

Reproduces how often:
Always, even on new profile.

Brave Version:
(Brave build: 1.19.86 Chromium: 88.0.4324.96)

additional note:
I got around the issue with an extension I use in Chrome (link to extension if that’s of any use: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/save-image-to-downloads/enjefpkmlibebgbbgidmhpmjhcdffhfm)
