Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
Click on a PDF link
Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
Download dialog is displayed
PDF should open in browser window
Reproduces how often:
Every time I click on a PDF link
Operating System and Brave Version(See the
About Brave page in the main menu):
Brave Version 0.68.132 Chromium: 76.0.3809.132 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Slide that off.

Any other ideas?
