I think you need to update Brave to latest.

Just went through the exact steps you listed.
Seems to work OK for me.

Try this site for uploading screenshots:

Hi Meeker-Morgan,

I updated to the latest version.

It seems I was able to download . . . something, but it wasn’t a large file. It was only 22 kb for 720 p.

I tried another file-- 1080 p. Same small 22 kb size. The file sizes are 1 GB and 2 GB.

Then, the third try, the same error appeared as last time: “” This page has been blocked by Brave ERR_BLOCKED_BY_CLIENT"

I would like to attach screen shots. Is that possible?

Also, the 22 kb files that downloaded, when I try to open the file, I get a message, " There is no application set to open the document “Beyond Utopia (2023) [720p] [WEBRip] [YTS.MX].torrent”.

What app do I need to open Torrent files? Can you recommend?

Any idea what is happening with my difficulty downloading/ opening this file?

I hope you can help.

Thank you

You downloaded the torrent spec. A torrent downloader (not necessarily a browser) uses it to start the torrent.
