Download fails only for specific sites (but works with other browsers)

Description of the issue:
Download failed for specific sites failed with “Failed - Network error”. Hovering over the error shows “Network error not secure null”.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Go to
  2. Click on “Export” and select any of the dropdowns, e.g. Android Views (XML)
  3. A popup will appear asking you where to save the download.
  4. The download will terminate directly with “Failed - Network error”.
  5. Hovering over the error at the bottom download bar will show “Not secure null”

Downloading works with other browsers like edge.

Expected result:
File download successfully without error.

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Version 1.39.111 Chromium: 102.0.5005.61 (Official Build) (64-bit)


Looks like a Web Compatibility issue for @fanboynz

The ‘Export’ button handling, possibly needs assistance.

Thanks, looking into it @angelkoh

No eta, but created a ticket: Unsure what is causing it
