I was doing research on organizational life-cycles. I found a great summary table in PDF format that I wanted to save to my research folder. The PDF would not download using Safari but downloaded perfectly using Chrome/Brave. Does anyone know why?
UPDATE on SOLUTION
I called Apple support. After some trouble shooting it turns out that I’d deleted the download folder icon from my dock (this was intentional) so what was happening is that the PDF was downloading but I was not given any indication that it was. No “click visual” from the icon, no bouncing download folder on the dock and no progress bar at the top right on Safari. In short, it was working but with no visual cues. After dragging the download folder from Finder back to the dock everything is working correctly. In other words, user error but who knew?
Yes and I can export to PDF from the File Menu. What is odd is that the three of the icons on the context menu panel that shows up in Safari (see below) work as intended (those with the red outline) but the download icon cannot be invoked. I wonder if this is a bug or a security feature.
