Subject says it all. When I click on a file to download, I get a "server not found" error. Tried it with several games. All work in Chrome (but I hate Chrome . . . )

Just downloaded a file with no problems using the latest version of Safari, so don't know what to tell you. If you have the status bar turned on, it should show you the file URL at the bottom left of the window when you hover over the link.

Hm. It works on my MacBook Pro, but not on my desktop . . . Choosing random files and I get the same message for each.

Latest update for Sierra. Still a no go. Weird.

That's a weird URL. It should look like this:

https://boardgamegeek.com/filepage/136602/english-rulebook

I can get to the page where the file link is, but after that it goes to what I showed before. The link shown in the status bar is https://boardgamegeek.com/file/download/tmm4i1d19w/ODIN_EN_r...

Not sure what's up.

That is BGG's link for the webpage that contains the link to the file.

All of a sudden I cannot download files (Safari) from my laptop, either. Good grief.

Is it somehow related to the way your computers connect to the internet?
Do you use any browser plugins?

I'm not sure, Guido. I'm reasonably competent, but much of the tech has passed me by, so I'm not sure if I can answer that accurately.

Try using your computer through another WLAN, like your smartphone's hotspot if it has one - if it works like that, it's something in the network you're usually connecting through.

As for the plugins, you can show these in Safari through Preferences, then use the "Extensions" tab. If that's not empty, try disabling them all and see whether the issue is still around.

Not sure whether either of those helps, but they could...
