Download Problems on certain Sites



  • Hey,

    I have problems with downloading files from a certain kind of site for about the last 2 or 3 months now with all the snapshots and final releases up to 1.8. Before that, I had no such troubles.

    It seems to me, that it is sites that use scripts for the download.
    One example is the Native Instruments Reaktor User Library:
    https://www.native-instruments.com/en/reaktor-community/reaktor-user-library/
    The link for each instrument or effect is always pointing to "download.htm" but you get the correct file delivered when you click it in every other browser.

    For me, it only works one time, the first time I download something from that site. When I go to another instrument and download, I get the Vivaldi "Save" requester alright, but if I click okay, nothing happens.
    Page reload or cache emptying does not help, the only thing I can do is restart Vivaldi, then will again work once. So I have to restart Vivaldi for every download...

    It happens on more sites with a similar structure, but the above is one I visit often so it is more annoying.

    Would anybody have an idea what this could be about?

    Cheers and thanks!

    Tom

    Could you please provide an example of such site which does not ask you for credentials before attempting the download? It would be easier for others to test & investigate.
