When I’m using OWA for my work I can’t attach any files to the email. I select the little paper clip but nothing happens.
This also happens in Chrome (Chome does not support), and Microsoft Edge. The only browser that works is IE11. I’d like to use Brave. Thanks for any help.

Unable to download web email attachments
Opening PDF attachments in Outlook OWA

If you disable the shields does it allow you to attach file?


I disabled the shields for that site and it still won’t allow me to attach a file. When I click on the little paper clip nothing happens.


Could you open the dev tools and check if any error is shown in console. Once you on the OWA page press F12 or Ctrl+Shift+I and select console. If you see any error please take a screen shot and share it


Another issue from Unable to download web email attachments

I am facing a problem with downloading attachments from the web page. When I click on the download button, I get the same filename for download, named “GetFileAttachment”.


Another issue from Opening PDF attachments in Outlook OWA

I have encountered an issue of not being able to open a pdf attachment to an email while using an Outlook OWA. When the internal Brave pdf extension is enabled all i get is a screen with information that this extension is not working. When i switch it off in hope that the pdf file will be opened in a selected application in win 10 Brave crashes.


Hey there,

Adding this to the old topic as it seems to repeat the problem. Since updating to the latest Brave release, I’ve been unable to download any attachments from outlook - while shields are up, this is listed as a refused ad/tracker, but the issue continues with shields down. On console the error message provided is ‘Resource interpreted as Document but transferred with MIME type application’. Googling reveals the same issue appeared on an old version of chrome, and concerned the file extension being too long - but this seems to prevent me downloading any documents (which all download fine on firefox etc.)

Don’t suppose anyone knows a fix?


Hi All,

I too am having issues with Outlook 365 and attachments.
I can open PDF attachments and view them inline but am unable to download anything. I also cannot print more than one page from the PDF viewer.
Let me know if you need any logs or further information.



@waxwing, @paddy,
Why Brave releases are you using now?


Hey Mattches!

I just upgraded to “Version 0.56.12 Chromium: 70.0.3538.77 (Official Build) (64-bit)”
Issue is still present! I can add to onedrive but am unable to download.



Hey Mattches,

Same here - Version 0.56.12 Chromium: 70.0.3538.77 (Official Build) (64-bit). Interestingly, on my alt laptop I don’t have this problem, though the outlook account/brave version is the same.
