Downloads don't complete without manually Keeping

Description of the issue:
Downloads do not complete unless I open Settings/Downloads and press the Keep button.
How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Select and initiate any download (e.g. Adobe Acrobat Reader)
  2. Nothing appears on the screen after the download completes, implying that it did not occur.
  3. Open Settings/Downloads
  4. FInd the file (at the top of the queue)
  5. Observe the error message “This type of file may harm your computer.”
  6. Press Keep button
  7. Press Keep Anyway to confirm
  8. Downloaded file floating tile now appears in the upper-right of the screen (new in the current release)
    Expected result:
    Prior to 1.50.121, the file downloaded and a notification appeared in the lower-left corner of the screen. There was no (bothersome) requirement to Keep or Delete.

You can revert to Old Downloads bar by disabling flags called ‘Download Bubble’ and ‘Download bubble V2’ at brave://flags. Let us know if that solves your issue,

Thank you, that fixed it. I wonder why these two controls were enabled as Default on the last upgrade? I certainly did not turn them on!


Ummm, kinda something to do with chromium I guess. TBH, I don’t know lol
