Image downloaded with Brave not showing in other apps

Description of the issue:
Any image you download trough Brave browser in a android environment is not visible in any other app (to use).

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Download a image through Brave
  2. Open any gallery app
  3. Observe it is not there

Expected result:
The downloaded image should be visible and available in other apps. And not in a brave protocol adress like brave://storage blah blah

Brave Version( check About Brave):
1.41.100

Mobile Device details
Samsung S9 running on Android 12

Additional Information:
When you download a image, you can open it through the notification list at the top of the screen. But this is opening a brave:// protocol address and not a normal file location. This behavior is very annoying, because one want to use the downloaded image , nine out of ten times, in another app
