Downloads (Lab, Documents) not working

I started LFS211. I cannot seem to download anything. When I click the "DOCUMENT" or "LAB" button, it refreshes the page in the parent window, but does nothing else. Using Firefox 68.0.1.

EDIT: Well, found out that it was downloading PDF files in the background. I now have 15 copies of it in my downloads folder. Not sure why it did that instead of asking me where to save it as it does for any other type of file.

    Hi, have you tried clearing your cache? The course was updated this past Friday, and such issues are encountered usually if you do not clear your cache. I have just tested the buttons, and they work fine on my end. The documents that you are trying to download will open in a new window, and you can either view them in the browser, or download them.
