Since I updated to 6.0.1 I cannot download any document from Tor to my desktop. I use the download button at the upper right corner (five icons: full screen-print-download-other-doublearrow) that appear when a pdf document is shown up, but nothing happens. I have to open another browser, copy the url and download from it. Haven't changed parameters from default. I run OSX 10.7.5 on an end 2006 iMac.

  • Can you tell on which sites this happens?

It seems ticket #15899 had similar issues with the pdf.js download button, I don't see any errors in the console. It may be worth re-opening this ticket. I see similarly no activity as a result on clicking the download button on pdf.js running on Tails 2.4.

As a work around Right Click -> Save Page As (do macs even do right clicks yet?) and File -> Save Page As should both still work.

Update: This bug has been fixed under #19401 a patch is now applied in Tor Browser 6.0.2

  • Thanks. I made several querys with no results. Yes, it seems that it may be the same thing, but ... 1) the solution it gives is a piece of code in ... what is that? php? that I will not dare trying to implement with the browser I ordinarily use. Unless someone insert that piece of code in the next update I won´t be able. 2) "Save Page as" using comands or ctrl+mouse (osx without mighty mouse) or right mouse button (with mighty mouse) just gives the first page and not the complete pdf document

  • Correction: Save page as, does download the complete document. That may be a solution. Thanks.
