For some odd reason, I am unable to witness my download button, even when i am downloading something. I am able to access the downloaded file(s) in Finder just fine, but theres no download button for me to access it, open, and/or drag and drop the file in Safari itself. Does anyone have a solution to this issue?
I had the same problem and, even after following some tips, the problem persisted.
In my case, fixing this bug required 4 basic steps.
I hope the tips below can help you:
- If it is an option in your View->"Customize Toolbar" buttons, drag it to your toolbar (otherwise it is kept there, in toolbar, by default - since item 2 is okay)
- Make sure Safari->Preferences->General->"Remove download list items" is set as "Manually"
- Downloading anything to keep something in 'download list'.
- Make sure (at least in the 'very first time') you are NOT in "private window".
Even though I followed steps 1 through 3, my solution came after downloading a file in public window.
Afterwards, download button was visible again even to my private windows.
The downloads button will re-appear after your next download
