Pdf files are always downloaded twice



Description of the issue:

Any pdf I download from any site will be downloaded twice, and I end up with two versions of it on my phone. This is the only file format with which it happens, from what I can reckon.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Click on the download link for any online pdf file
  2. Observe on the file manager that there is an extra “<filename> (1)” pdf

Reproduces how often:
Always, as far as I can remember.

Brave Version:

Mobile Device details
Samsung Galaxy J5 (SM-J500F) with LineageOS 15.1

Android/iOS Version
Android 8.1


Is it same behaviour with stock Chrome browser as well?


Damn, I forgot to check that. Yeah, it is. Non-Chromium-based browsers work fine, though, which means this is upstream. Sorry for the trouble.


No problem. Certain things are beyond our control. But glad you brought this up. I’ll close the thread for now. Please open a new one if you run into anything else.
