Can't Download Items

Description of the issue:
I try to download programs and the download opens…then stops. I click it again tries to go, then stops. I try the same links in Safari…no problem. I got to Brave prefs, the only thing available is to change download locations - nothing about security or blocker. If I can’t download items, I need to use a different browser. I like Brave but I’m not going to use two browsers. Thanks!

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
Nothing to show

Expected result:

Reproduces how often:

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu): OS X Catalina, Brave 14

Downloads work, or not?


I managed to download the zip file but I had to right-click , choose save link as, save in folder, then click on arrow right to discard and choose keep.

BUT I tested in another site for ZIP files @ , and they download fine!

I had many issues when also downloading other extensions .txt, exe, csv ; It is better to use an app like IDM or a free alternative.
