Downloading moves icons on desktop


Description of the issue:
Brave some times moves my desktop icons when i download files. I have documented the occurrences over 6 months and the icons are only moved when i download files with brave.

It appears as if Brave puts a place holder file or something on the top left slot on the desktop grid. This shifts all my icons down one slot. When the download is complete, the temp file goes away leaving all my icons shifted down, with the first slot on the top left empty.
It is very intermittent and happens maybe twice a month.

How can this issue be reproduced?
It has happened when i download things from varying websites. I have not been able to discern a pattern. Perhaps it has something to do with scripts that i cant see.

Expected result:
Empty space at the top left corner of the desktop marked with red.

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Occurred on all versions for the passed year including the current one.

Why don’t you just make a folder for Brave in the downloads folder and avoid this problem?

Because i set it up the way i want it.
