Brave Browser Does NOT request location of where File Download is to Go

. . . and include those here, too.

In a New Window, go to

Brave Browser > Settings > Get started > On startup . . . “Continue where you left off”

. . . and include, here, the status of that – a screenshot will do, if not revealing personal info about you.
