Description of the issue:
When I download an application in brave beta. The browser makes me acknowledge every single download ending with .exe I can’t find a way to get brave to stop blocking my downloads in settings.
How can this issue be reproduced?
- Install brave beta on a fresh win 10 pc.
- Download drivers or (seemingly) any .exe file.
- Wait for file to finish downloading only to be blocked behind the keep for discard wall within brave.
I appreciate the thought about warning me what .exe file can do. However, when I download a program its very inconvenient to have to micromanage every download by popping backing forth between File Explorer and Brave. Warn me, then let me decided how much risk i’m willing to take on by turning it off. If you think about it, it’s a little redundant when you consider Windows User Account Controls (UAC). But Microsoft lets me turn those reminders off.
Brave Version( check
Version 1.12.91 Chromium: 84.0.4147.89 (Official Build) beta (64-bit)
I just reinstalled windows 10 pro and switched from Brave Browse to Brave Beta. Also, it seems that if the program is located in a zip file there is no problem. I downloaded the zip for Equalizer APO with no problem.
