Prevent auto PDF download and display in browser


Brave Browser is automatically downloading a PDF that should be displayed embedded in the browser.

What should happen: When my users visit the invoice approval portal for AvidXchange the image of the invoice should be displayed in the browser as an embedded PDF.

The problem: Brave browser will auto download the PDF without prompting and will not display the PDF in the browser.


  1. How do we prevent Brave from downloading the image as a PDF? Brave should never just start a download without first prompting the user.
  2. How do we get Brave to work with the AvidXchange portal like every other browser on the market?


I’m experiencing the same problem with another cloud-based application. Chrome, Edge, Firefox, etc. all interpret the command to display the PDF. Brave simply downloads it.
