I tried in both Firefox and Opera. 

After right-clicking on the link I am presented with the options:

Open in a web browser
Copy URL

"Copy URL" is useless. "Open in a web browser" opens a page, which then
announces "done." The page is blank and no download option appears.

When I right click on the link I am not presented with any options
other than the above. There is no option to save the link to disk.

The filename is apparently tyro.pdf. I googled on that and found dozens
of files named tyro.pdf, including "the first extraterrestrial pdf
ebooks download." 

If you have the correct file, can you send it to me off-list?
