Description of the issue:
I am unable to view PDF files located at FTP addresses in the Brave browser. Instead the download and save prompt pops up, with no option to simply open the file.
Usually this is no problem, but since I am currently switching between many PDF documents, it causes a lot of hassle, because I need to know where I have saved which files and then I also need to delete the ones I don’t need anymore.
Is there a simple, secure way to open PDF files at FTP web addresses in the browser?
Failing that, is there some way to save downloaded PDF files to a temporary folder that is removed/emptied when I close Brave, per default?
How can this issue be reproduced?
- Find any PDF stored at a FTP address, e.g. almost any one linked on this page: https://www.eso.org/sci/software/pipelines/
- Follow the link
PDF opens in browser like most PDF files located at HTTP(S) addresses.
Brave Version( check
Windows 8.1 64-bit
Version 1.2.41 Chromium: 79.0.3945.88 (Official Build) (64-bit)
I have the site setting for downloading PDF files instead of opening them turned off.
The problem persists when I have deactivated all my extension.
