When downloading documents using the Brave browser, it does not automatically add the extension to the document name. That is, if I change the name myself.

For example, if I downoad testfile.pdf and save it using windows explorer under the name ‘use_this’, it does not save it as a .pdf file, but without any extension. This way the system does not know how to open the document.

It would be nice if the Brave browser, like other browsers, would automatically detect what extension should be used for the file. Especially if a large public is going to use the browser this can be expected to become a problem.


This is a known issue if the file name is changed. The workaround for now is to manually add it after the file name is changed. We have an issue logged for this and can be tracked here
