troubleshooting - clear the download history and the behavior stops.

I have seen this posted in a few threads, but it is not fixed.
I recently switched to a chrome browser for my online shop account and it never hangs trying to download a file on the same OS and hardware.

If you clear the download history, the problem goes away.
the last time i tested it, it starts after about 6 things have been downloaded.
can anyone say why this bug is not fixed after it’s been reported and proven so many times?


once again, clear out the browser download history and the issue stops. i guess no one is ever going to fix it.
