I noticed that I can't download files with either firefox or google chrome. Is there any other alternative for a linux user?
Yes, there is another browsers for linux, but you do can donwload with firefox and chrome. Just right click + save as the file, or the browser may try open the file instead of download it. I use both browsers in linux.
Works fine for me, just do as the c4ptain says
I have had no problem with downloading at any time, using linux. Debian, ubuntu, dsl og other.
