Cannot manually download from Members Area

Post by jomni » Sat Jan 20, 2018 10:58 pm

Issue 1: When using Chrome, the login page of the Members Area flickers so I cannot input anything in the input boxes. It works in IE and Edge.
Issue 2: When downloading stuff (in IE and Edge) it just loads but does not download. I already turned off pop-up blocker and still the same.

works fine for me, and i use chrome version Version 63.0.3239.132 (Official Build) (64-bit) which is with windows 10

so check the firewall and popup blocker and or AV program log files and see if any of them are stopping it

again i use the default windows defender and firewall on the net pc and use chromes ABP for a pop up blocker etc, and downloads from the members area work fine here so can't reproduce, but will pass on all the same.

depending on what AV program you use, 9 out of 10 times it's that or the firewall blocking the login script or download

I finally know why. It's my VPN extension. Even if I don't turn on the VPN, the mere presence of an extension messes up the Members page ("I'm not a robot" captcha goes crazy).
It also prevents downloads.

VPN chrome extension disabled now (not just turned off) unless I really need it.

I'm having the same issue guys. I think my issue is with popup blocker.

i use one built into chrome and then use ABP pro, which also lets me see what's blocked and add it to a safe list, then nothing is stopped for what i need to view, so again errors on users end and not sites, so not alot site can do to alter that i'm sorry to say, users issue again.

sometimes either AV or pop up blockers do interfere with the downloads process, so either a rule needs adding to the program on the users side or disabling when downloading from the members section,...
