Can't download from mediafire

Aug 10, 2015 8:12AM PDT

Hello. I was trying to find an old file and the only place I cuold find it on was mediafire. And I can never, ever download stuff from mediafire.

When I try, the whole page seems to just refresh, though sometimes the download button will say "still not downloading? click here for repair" which does nothing.

I wondered if it was perhaps just a response to my adblock. I wanted this file bad so I turned off my adblock refreshed then tried again and it still refreshed. Though this time I had to clear up a bunch of pop ups and run a virus scan so I put adblock back on.

Any advice?

this is the file I'm trying to download. Thanks in advance.

I can't download it too. Before this happened, I could always download things like Minecraft, now I'm trying to download the updated version of Minecraft and I can't, I even deleted my Minecraft. Same thing, when I click download, it refreshes. The file is on top,for some reason, I can't paste it down her . My version that I want to download is 0.13 build 2

Just in case folk try it, it's gone now.

Once in a while you find this and my advice is get a friend to snag it for you. Yes it could be your choice of adblock (I had adblock+ and WOT running when I snagged it for you) or other. Frankly the time lost finding Waldo isn't worth it at times.

Try to Change your AD blocker

I think you have something to do with a Script blocker that's why it's occurring in your download time. I also had this type of problems when using web proxy.
