Download Spam Protection cannot be overridden to allow legitimate downloads
A user has reported the following issue with file downloads on 12.0.7 on the forum:
I’m on Linux, with Tor Browser 12.0.7
I’m trying to download (PDF) files from a site i’ve downloaded from many times before.
- Get a yellow triangle on downloads icon.
- open it and it says “Downloads blocked from ”
- click Show more information
- says “ attempted to automatically download multiple files. The site could be broken or trying to store spam files on your device.”
Options to “Allow Download” or “Remove Files” don’t seem to do anything or change the behavior.
Each time I click a link to download a file from this site I get another message like this. (it worked the first time)
