Chrome Browser Bug Set Downloads to SD Card?

    Running Chrome on Android 11 (Samsung Note 20 Ultra). When I change the download location to SD card, it sucessfully downloads the file to the Download folder on the SD card and shows the message it completed at the bottom of chrome where you can click to open it.

    HOWEVER, it always shows a 'download error' notification as if Chrome is still looking to Internal to verify the download completed even though it saved to the SD card. Seems like an obvious bug. I tried clearing cache and app data and restarting (a common suggestion for a variety of issues). But no effect.

    It doesn't display the bogus download error when saving to internal.

    Anyone else notice this or do very very few people even know you can change the download location in Chrome for Android let along actually changing it to SD Card?

    Personally, I cannot stand Chrome.

    I use IDM+ and can download whatever and put it wherever, and no issues.
