Description of the issue:
I’m trying to download a NVIDIA Graphics Drive from it’s official site. But after the dawnload paused due to a break in connection, the download won’t resume now. “Keep Anyway” and “Cancle” buttons don’t work. Screenshot below.
@Aman_M it’s because the download link it http and won’t upgrade to https. I’m wanting to say the same happens on Chrome but I can’t remember. Also unsure if you were to turn off Safe Browsing at brave://settings/security if it makes a difference.
To quote how it was said back when it was implemented on Chrome:
Today we’re announcing that Chrome will gradually ensure that secure (HTTPS) pages only download secure files. In a series of steps outlined below, we’ll start blocking “mixed content downloads” (non-HTTPS downloads started on secure pages). This move follows a plan we announced last year to start blocking all insecure subresources on secure pages.
In Chrome 88 (released January 2021) and beyond, Chrome will block all mixed content downloads.
@Saoiray I get it that it’s blocked (the link has to be right-clicked and saved-as to get download prompt) but once I choose to “Keep” it, suddenly wifi disconnection causes the “Keep Anyway” button on brave://downloads/ to not work, doesn’t make sense.
Also, I just tested, disabling “Upgrade to HTTPS” and “Safe Browsing” makes no difference to me anywhere in all of this.
Thank you for reporting this. Will be forwarding this to the team. I am curious though — if you go to re-download the file from the site, the download (or the “new” download) will work, correct?
@Mattches If the download continues uninterrupted without any disconnection then yes, file is saved. This issue just appears when the connection breaks in-between. Then Keep anyway and Cancel buttons don’t work on resuming the download.
I can manually disconnect wifi while dowloading to reproduce this issue.
