PDF's automatically save to default download folder

Description of the issue: When “always open with system viewer” is selected for .PDF files, a downloaded pdf will open in my system viewer, but will save to C:\Users\username\Downloads, even though “Ask where to save each file before downloading” is enabled.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Settings > Additional Settings > Downloads > Enable “Ask where to save each file before downloading”
  2. Download some pdf, click the “^” on the bottom ribbon next to the name of the PDF, select “Always open with system viewer”
  3. Download a new pdf

Expected result: When dowloading a PDF, i expect to see windows exporer open automatically, prompting me to choose a location to save the file. After a location is selected, I expect the pdf file to open in my system pdf viewer.

Brave Version( check About Brave):

Additional Information: Running Windows 10, system PDF viewer is SumatraPDF v3.2
