Trello download button appears, but opens in new tab.

Previously this button would download the file immediately, now it opens a new tab.

Tried incognito(chrome), different user, and different computer. 


Any ideas how to get it back to downloading immediately.

Hi, @Elliot Strong! So sorry for the frustration here. I checked with our team, and it appears to be a known bug. No ETA for a fix quite yet, so hang tight!

Appreciate the response! 



Is there a fix for this yet - It is making life so hard  and now the download button is gone replaced with an open in a new window button - which is worse.

I've actually created an account to complain just about this one feature.  As a frequent user of Trello who needs to download a lot of files being shared by my team, this is a major annoyance!
