I tried downloading my own csv file through idm, result : downloads fine.

Thanks for the support , tried downloading your .csv and the browser says its dangerous and cannot choose to keep the file. Downloaded the .zip and was all fine. Using a download manager works.

The problem got fixed itself yesterday 04/06/2022 without doing anything , just uninstalled and done a complete clean-up of the browser and reinstalled , had the same problem for the first few days and now is fixed out of nowhere. Thanks!
