Download button is not working

When I select "Advanced Search" on the main menu and then "Title". I get "Browsing Title" order by "Release Date". I select "Short Science Fiction Collection 073" by pressing
"Download".
Nothing happens. No message at bottom left recognizing any stage of download. No error message from Windows, chrome or librivox. It is like I had done nothing.
I have been downloading books since XP (I think.--It was long ago.) I have been downloading using Windows 10 since it was first issued. This problem has started in the last 3-4 weeks.

Hmm. It works for me. It pops up a window asking me where I want to save the Zip file. What happens if you right click on the Download button and select "Save Link As"?

I'm actually getting the same thing. No download, no popup window, nothing. However, I did try one thing that worked. Try this: Instead of left-clicking on the Download button, right-click it and then select "Open link in new tab". That started the download going for me. Maybe it will help you?

What browser are you using? It might be something to do with Chrome.

I'm on Waterfox (a fork of Firefox).

Thanks triciag and mightyfelix both of your solutions give downloads. But I still can't do it the old way. Maybe it has something to do with chrome or (i forgot to note) bitdefender. I'll post it if I find the solution.
