This is a limitation in iOS. Unfortunately working with files in iOS is a pain in the neck.

Workaround: Print the PDF. You will see the print preview. Zoom into the preview. Now you should be able to save the PDF.

workaround works; thanks!

while I have no doubt getting this to work on iOS is a pain, I will note that all the other browsers accomplish it and you don’t have to use the workaround.

iOS is an unwanted child for the Brave devs. Always has been.
