I have my downloads set to Downloads folder in Internal Storage and most files download correctly to this folder
However, for some reason, when I download an .srt file they don’t go into my downloads folder but instead I find them in Movies folder. I’ve tried again and again with similar results.
Brave 1.38.119, Chromium 101.0.4951.67

MIUI Global 12.5.7
Possibly . . . look thru your Brave Browser > Settings, for something that looks like it would re-route or re-direct a media file.
Perhaps some auto-play feature requires a media file to download to a certain folder.
Or an Extension is involved.
Nothing I can find. On Mobile so have no extensions. It doesn’t send the .srt file to a program to open, it just downloads it into this folder
If you are feeling energetic, try to disable the influence of the website . . .
