Browser download dialogue/window

I had thought the changes in the design of the window when I go to download a file are due to changes in Firefox. Since the issues with a recent update I’ve decided to try using Brave as my daily browser (despite seemingly having a workaround for said issue certain tests show FF to be extremely slow, plus I thought this issue was FF specific although it’s not.)

See screenshot below, this window is the same when I go to download whether I’m using FF or Brave, despite being based on completely different core code. It only became like this a few months ago. Issues are the incredibly small Name box for viewing file name, the position of the Save button and the fact keyboard navigation has pretty much completely stopped working.

Could this be use to changes in Thunar as I use XFCE with the default file manager (which happens to be my favourite anyway.) If so is there anywhere I can change it? In a Thunar window the address bar takes up full available width, unlike the Name bar in the download window.

Semi-related: FF would save last saved location for each website I visited, very useful. Brave doesn’t seem to do this. Is there any way to get it to do this like FF does?

Depending on which toolkit was used for the application in question it will use the toolkit’s filedialog and thus it is not directly a part of the browser but provided as a part of the toolkit itself.

This will render the dialog differently depending on the theme used.

So what you are seeing is most likely the changes with Gimp Tool Kit also know as GTK.

Thanks for the pointer.

The GTK theme I use is one I created (edited an existing one and saved as a new name) so the theme itself has certainly had no changes pushed through updates. Are there any global GTK settings I could check? Or a setting within the theme which may affect this? I tried a random handful of other themes and all seemed to be the same…
