Waiting for extension PDF Viewer... ...forever!

Description of the issue:
Since starting Brave this morning every page I try to load is blocked, spinners are spinning and in the down left corner it says “Waiting for extension PDF Viewer…”.

This happens whenever I try to load a url in any tab. From previously opened from my last session, to new tabs. The new tab loads with out a problem, the one by brave which gives me stats of how awesome it is, anything I load after that has the same issue.

Restarting the browser has no effect.
I had to use Chrome to post this :frowning:

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
Just load any url in any tab.

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):

Expected result:
That brave doesn+t wait for PDF Viewer on pages without it!?

Reproduces how often:
Just started today and its constant.

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):
MacOS 10.14.4
Brave Version 0.64.75 Chromium: 74.0.3729.131 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:
Is there a way to disable PDF Viewer temporarily?

By going to the address in the picture above. Settings>Site Settings>PDF Documents

Then switching Download PDF on and off fixed the problem.
