It started a couple of months ago, but now when I download something, it doesn’t stick unless I immediately choose “Keep” instead of delete because the file type might be unsafe. I understand that some people might need that warning, so if you wanted to add the feature, that’s fine. And it’s even fine if you turn it on by default… but there needs to be a setting to turn it off. This dramatically weakened the user experience to help inexperienced users with an edge case scenario. It seems 100% contrary to the vibe and purpose of the Brave browser.
Steps to reproduce: 1. Download a file.
What happens: You have to interact with the browser just to get the file you intentionally tried to download.
Expected behavior: You click download a file, and it downloads.
When does it happen: Always without the option to customize.
Versions: macOS 10.14.6, Brave 1.5.115
Notes: Please don’t force confirmation of every basic aspect of the browsing experience for “safety.” That kind of intrusive user experience is what drove me to use Brave in the first place.
