Description of the issue:

Since the time I updated brave browser for android to latest version it’s unable to open various downloaded files such as pdf, music and video.

The issue seems to be in the latest version of “chromium” version because latest chrome browser version is also giving similar error message “can’t open the file”

Please overcome the problem ASAP .
If possible provide me with a link with which I can roll back to previous chromium version based brave browser.

Thank you
