Save Image As... saves as a document with no file extension, not as an image (jpg or gif)

Description of the issue:
I’m on a Mac (Monterey) using the latest desktop version of Brave. Downloading images using the right-click “Save Image As…” option isn’t working properly. It saves the image without a file extension, meaning my computer doesn’t know it’s an image. For example, if I right-click on an image called “FunnyCatPhoto.gif” and select “Save Image As…”, Brave saves it to my Downloads folder as “FunnyCatPhoto” without the .gif at the end, and my Mac thinks it’s a generic ‘document’ instead of a gif. I have to manually add the .gif (or .jpg, whatever it is) before it will work properly.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Go an image on the internet, whether it be jpg, gif, or whatever.
  2. Right-click on it, select “Save Image As…”
  3. You’ll see in the filename that Brave has not included the file extension of .jpg/.gif/etc.

Expected result:
Image should save with a proper file extension (i.e. “.jpg” or “.gif”)
