Hi Minedeployder, I think there is a button to remove the "Solution" designation under that reply or maybe it's in the menu accessed by the 3 vertical dots to the upper right of it. (I'm not a moderator, so I don't see such things on other peoples' threads.) You mentioned:

Could you describe that in a little more detail? There are numerous styles of downloads. Obviously the most basic is a direct file push. There may also be a redirect involved in that step. Sometimes you need to choose a mirror. Then there are sites where a new page displays with some kind of advertising and you have to wait during a countdown to get a file pushed. Yet others may use ingenious techniques to move large amounts of data in the background (e.g., Mega).

Do you notice any pattern as to which types of download or which download sites don't work correctly?

If you click the Downloads button on the main toolbar -- this doesn't appear until after the first download -- does it mention any errors?

Ok, thanks for your time and sorry. Problem was firefox for no reason starts showing "dowlnoad" window in second monitor, that is off 90% of time.

In the options, under General, make sure you have selected "Always ask you where to save files." Otherwise, it saves files to the folder specified without asking.

Is it for every site or is there a specific site that the download feature isn't working on?

Have you tried any other troubleshooting steps?

If you haven't I would suggest starting with clearing your caches and cookies.

Wow, good work figuring that out.

I am a one-monitor person and find it confusing when I try to use two, so I'm not well-positioned to explain how to fix that.
