I have the same problem, yet no pop-up blockers here. I deactivated both ad-block plus (using Firefox, by the way) and all the Norton browsing options and still can't manage to download anything. The thing is, a couple of months ago it used to work just fine (with ad-block plus and Norton safe search). Now all that shows up is a blank page with "Download Local" written on top and then the sentence "The download should have automatically started by now. If it did not, click here." appears after a couple of seconds. Of course the only thing I get from clicking it is a page refresh and more of the same. I'd like some help on getting those back, because ever since it stopped working, the one thing I do is trying to find the person on youtube whenever I want to download a video.
