Option to open vs. download file

I just downloaded the most recent version of Brave. I’m trying to open an image document from an email and the only option is to download a save it, then open it. My old browser (and all others I’ve used) has an option to just open it in the correct software instead of actually saving it, but Brave is only giving me the option to save.

Description of the issue:

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
Open email with attachment, click attachment. Brave only gives the option to download and not to open.

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):

Only option is to save to hard drive.

Expected result:
Should allow to open picture without saving.

Reproduces how often:
Every time.

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):
Windows 10 Enterprise; Brave 1.4.95

Can I ask what email client it is that you’re using?

@Mattches I think this one https://github.com/brave/brave-browser/issues/2153

I am using AOL for email, at least this is the one I am having issues with. I haven’t tried other email clients yet.

The issue that @eljuno linked to is very likely the case. I’ve added your report to the thread on Github for devs to see on your behalf.
