you are a linux user right? So, if you have a problem, you can easily 
help yourself and do a test using the command line:

1. make sure you have 'wget' installed (type 'yum install wget' as root 
in a terminal window)
2. copy the URL of the pdf you want to download to the clipboard
3. open up a terminal window and type 'wget '
4. paste the URL, hit enter

But this is really, very offtopic here.
