If I download an image, the extension (.jpg/.png) doesn’t get added at the end of the file. This can be fixed manually by adding it in my Downloads folder, but I download hundreds of images per day, and it quickly adds up in time wasted, if I have to manually add an extension at the end of each image for it to be readable. I can’t seem to find a way to add that automatically. This is a Brave issue, because as soon as I download an image with Safari, the extension is there. So it’s got to be a setting in Brave that I can’t find.
How can this issue be reproduced?
Go to Google and search for an image
Right click and hit Save Image As
When the native downloads window pops up, notice how the file name doesn’t contain the image extension.
The extensions are indeed hidden, but that’s not the solving the problem. If I download an image with Safari, it gets downloaded automatically with the correct extension, and the image is ready to be opened. When I download that same image using Brave, it gets downloaded without the extension, therefore it’s not usable until I rename it and add .png or .jpg myself. Ideally, just like in Safari, that should happen automatically. I shouldn’t have to add the extension myself.
