@Lazlo123,
Thanks for reaching out and welcome to Community! :tada:
In Brave, go to Settings --> Privacy/Security --> Content Settings --> PDF files
Toggle the option to download PDF files in Brave to “ON”
Try to download another PDF file and let me know if this resolves the issue. I’m able to download PDF documents as .pdf without issue using the same Brave installation:

Thanks for getting to me so quickly. Your solution worked well. With the new Brave, the content link is not immediately obvious, but I found it and did as you suggested.

Thanks again.
