PDF download problem Answered

Windows 7 Pro - current
Chrome - current 57.0.2987.133 (64-bit)
Screen shot included

Problem - When I open Gmail from Instructables and clk on Download button, the next step does not open a download button as in the past but, instead, a page ( All ) is auto downloaded (see Screen Shot). Then, when I open my Download folder only a white page for that file is available. It will not open. Previously I would have a PDF file (Chrome round icon) to open.

Thanks much,

(I can't get the upload to work for my JPEG screen shot. Will send it separately.)

My question doesn't make sense, my apology.

The Instructables digests are delivered to my Gmail box. I open the digest and choose an item to download, but when I clk the Download button I no longer see the download processing horizontal stripe and, after that's done, I am no longer presented with an arrow to to begin the PDF download. Rather, in the lower left corner of the window I see a rectangular box with a label (e.g.: Thermoforming Werkplaats IDC - All.html)

In my download folder, the PDF document does not exist. This began happening several weeks ago and has increased in frequency.

Again, thank you,

Wow, I can't even figure out how to use the forum site!? I hit Reply button, the comment box opened, and I clicked the Make Comment button. That's not correct? I'll try again, thanks Yonatan24.

You're trying to download PDFs of instructables through gmail? Not by hitting the "download" button on the instructable page?
