Different sites that host downloads. Specifically. "click here to download"
This used be simple process, click and it gives you the option to "Save", Save As" etc. The filenames were all ending in .MP4
Now, same "save as option" pops up, but the filename to save is just a text string, not a filename (doesn't end in dot anything) When I try to download it anyway, nothing happens. I reset my modem and it worked temporarily. Now even that doesn't help. It can only be something from hughesnet or some sort of block at the provider for my home IP address, because when I take my laptop to multiple "free internet" locations, it works at all of them just as it used to.
and I downloaded Firefox to see if it was the browsers and still got the same problem
