Reopening as the previous report wasn’t replied to/dealt with and was closed. However the issue persists and it’s annoying as all hell.
Brave ignores the default file manager
Download something or do anything where in the browser gives you the option to open with file manager (or just go to your downloads and “open folder”).
I expect the default file manager to be opened.

Thunar is the core filemanager of XFCE…I hate it. Always replace with pcmanfm…Brave constantly opens Thunar despite my session explicitly defining pcmanfm as the preferred/default file manager.
Comically I’ve even made a symlink to pcmanfm under the guise of Thunar to work around this yet Brave will opens Thunar.
