Whatsapp Attachments not downloading

Description of the issue:
As I try to download a document that I received via WhatsApp Web site, it says the document was downloaded, but it wasn´t. I tried to do it in Chrome and it did well.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.

  • In Brave Browser, enter WhatsApp Web site (http://web.whatsapp.com )
  • It will show a QR code to be scanned with your cell phone.
  • Open the WhatsApp app in your cell phone.
  • In the chat window, select “WhatsApp Web”.
  • Point the cell phone to the PC screen to read the QR code.
  • Now the PC will be paired to the cell phone showing all your WhatsApp messages including the attachments and images.
  • Try to download a PDF document someone else sent to you before.
  • Brave will say it has downloaded the document but in fact it didn´t.

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):

Expected result:
It should show the download window as it does in Google Chrome.

Reproduces how often:
Every time I try to download a PDF document in the WhatsApp Web site.

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):
Windows 10 Home V.1809
Brave Browser - Version 1.1.21 Chromium: 79.0.3945.79 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Hi @martishans,
Is the issue you’re experiencing only with PDF documents or does it also happen with images/videos?

Also I see your version is 1.1.21

If that is correct, you should update your browser to the newest version.
